Advent Tree of Activities


You could simply make this Advent Tree as a countdown to Christmas Day, but why not include activities. On each ring, I have written an activity we will do that day. All of my activities, I have shared on my 25 Days of Christmas Check List.

I chose to make this project on my own because I wanted to surprise my kids with the activities on each slip as the look at them daily (starting from the bottom.) But you could do this with a child.

All you need to make this project is 4 pieces of construction paper (2 green, 1 red, 1 yellow) and either tape, glue or staples (I used staples) to close each ring. Cut the strips the short way on the construction paper (you can get 10 strips per full sheet of construction paper) and assemble in the pattern as you see above. You will need to cut out 19 GREEN, 5 RED, and  1 YELLOW.

Such a cute craft, my niece and nephew would LOVE to make this with me... I think we will give it a try when I go visit them the week before Christmas!

That is a cute tree. I wish I was more of a crafty person. That might be my tree for this year
