The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever



Ashlyn got this cute book from her kindergarten teacher today.  After I read it to her she asked if we could make our own Christmas tree.  So I cut out a pattern and got out some materials and we worked together to decorate our tree.  In the story two little mice work together to pick out the biggest Christmas tree and then their families decorate it together.  So, we helped each other make ours.  Her favorite part was twisting two pipe cleaners together to make a candy cane.

    One of my favorite things to do is to start with a great children’s book and expand from there into art, music, science, and so forth. I love the Christmas tree too! Thanks for sharing!
