stART ~ Three Little Christmas Trees (Fingerplay)

Welcome to stART!  I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post by either adding my button or a text link, so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week.  Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!

Check out the  stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects.  All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.  I have also included a list of all the blogs that participate in stART.  **This is a work in progress so if you have participated and would like to be added to the list, leave me a comment and let me know.

This week we did something a little different.  We have been working on this Christmas Tree Poem/Fingerplay so we made some cute Christmas Trees to go with it.

Three Little Christmas Trees

Three little Christmas trees standing all alone, (hold up three fingers)
Their heats were very sad (hands over heart, sad face) 'cause they hadn't found a home. (fingertips form pointed roof)
Then "CHOP" went the ax, (right hand chop left forearm) and down fell a tree, (palms together lean to side)
And off it went (bounce pointer finger from left to right) with a happy family. (smile with index fingers at corners of mouth)
Two little Christmas trees standing all alone, (hold up two fingers)
Their heats were very sad (hands over heart, sad face) 'cause they hadn't found a home. (fingertips form pointed roof)
Then "CHOP" went the ax, (right hand chop left forearm) and down fell a tree, (palms together lean to side)
And off it went (bounce pointer finger from left to right) with a happy family. (smile with index fingers at corners of mouth)
One little Christmas tree standing all alone, (hold up one finger)
It's heat was very sad (hands over heart, sad face) 'cause they hadn't found a home. (fingertips form pointed roof)
Then "CHOP" went the ax, (right hand chop left forearm) and down fell a tree, (palms together lean to side)
And off it went (bounce pointer finger from left to right) with a happy family. (smile with index fingers at corners of mouth)
No little Christmas trees standing all alone, (pointer finger and thumb make a zero)
Their hearts were very happy (hands over heart)
'Cause they all had found a home. (fingertips form pointed roof)

Paper Plate Christmas Trees

I cut a paper plate into 4 different sized pieces and then we glued them together to make a tree shape. IMG_1170IMG_1169The girls painted it with green paint.  IMG_1173IMG_1171 Then they glued on sequins and spangles for the decorations and added a star at the top and a construction paper trunk.  They had a lot of fun decorating their trees and it was great fine motor practice too!

They look so cool layered like that! It gives a nice 3-D effect.

What a FUN idea layering the paper plates! We just got some Christmas tree books at the library yesterday so I will have to try that idea. Love it!
