Name Tree – Christmas Theme

Name Tree is a Christmas themed name recognition activity for preschoolers. I personally love themed activities. It makes it more fun & interesting for kids to learn. 😀

What you need

  • Construction Paper (White, Green, Yellow, Brown)
  • Marker
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Labels

How to

  • Cut out triangles from green construction paper to form the tree. To match the number of letters in your kids name.
  • Write the name on the triangles using markers. (One letter per traingle)
  • Cut out a small rectangle from the brown paper for the trunk.
  • Now let your LOs stick the triangles & trunk onto a white paper using glue. ( in order – to form their name tree)
  •  Cut out star shape from yellow paper and stick it on top and your tree is ready. You could also draw a star using markers.
  • Extend the activity – Laminate the finished piece (for reuse). Write down the letters to form their name on the round labels. Let them match the labels to the tree.

    Miss A(3 yrs) & Miss D(2 yrs) were so excited to make their own name tree. They enjoyed it more when i laminated it and gave them the labels to match the letters. Miss D took us by surprise by matching it perectly. Miss A did it like a pro. She spelled out each letter as she did it. We also revised our shapes (triangle, rectangle, star & circle)👍 I left it in their shelf last week with some labels and they did it over and over again. 😀
