This week we were reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom which is a book that we love. I had seen ideas for making the tress on other websites before and I combined a few ideas that I have seen.
We are reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to review letters in the alphabet. Madeline is doing really well with her letters and we have practiced all but X, Z and Q. After reading the story we made our own trees!
We started with tracing hand and arm onto brown paper for the trunk. Then I traced their hands and cut out four handprints for the leaves. Do-a-dot markers worked perfectly for adding coconuts. And lastly we used stamps to make the letters. Madeline did a great job with stamping her letters. Owen was quite messy with them but had a great time.

I think he was trying to make fingerprints rather than use the stamps! Madeline loves stamps!
