* paper plates (2 sizes)
* cardboard tube
* bingo marker
* blutac (or you might prefer to use glue)
* sticky tape
* yellow paper
* cotton ball
Using a ruler to get your lines straight cut three segments from the paper plates, each a little smaller than the last. I cut the biggest and smallest pieces from a large plate and the middle from a small plate, but you could also use the same plate for all three.
We made some green paint by mixing yellow and blue together (Bubble is right into colour changing at the moment).
I cut two trees so Squeak could make one too. I stuck the pieces to her highchair tray with blutac and let her go for it with a paintbrush (and her hands ;-D).
Once the paint was dry Bubble decorated her tree with some 'baubles' by dabbing on ink from a bingo marker. A cotton bud and paint would do the job too :-)
I showed her how to add snow around the edges using a cotton ball and white paint and she decorated all three segments.
We cut a yellow star from our coloured paper and used blutac to assemble our tree. You could also use glue if you wanted, we were just impatient!
We made a trunk for our Christmas tree by splaying one end of the cardboard tube and taping it to an upturned paper plate for stability.
