Since our Make a Monster was such a hit, I thought it would be fun to do a Christmas themed version, Make a Tree. This STEM activity has definitely been kid tested and kid approved thanks to our current obsession for all things Christmas. My oldest LOVED it. Hopefully her friends will enjoy theirs too!
Make a Tree comes a single page that contains labels for the gift. The front of the label says “Make a Tree” with a cute, little tree.
While the back has a little poem. It is editable so that you can personalize it for your students or your child’s friends in his or her class.
What You Need for Make a Tree

Getting Make a Tree Ready
First you will want to make balls of green playdough and wrap in plastic food wrap (or something similar). Next you will want to cut the tinsel. I did two fairly small strips, one large than the other. Next you will want to place all of the items inside the ziploc baggie. Each bag got 1 ball of dough, and a handful of beads and rhinestones, and 2 strips of tinsel. Make sure you seal the bags properly so everything does not fall out of the bags.
The labels are editable. Download KG The Fighter font and open the document in Adobe Acrobat. You will be able to type in the desired name under from on the back of the label card.
Print off the labels and cut and fold. You will then staple the label at the top of the plastic bag. This is what it should look like when you are finished.
How Make a Tree Works
First, let’s be honest. By the time you get all of these bags up to your school or your child’s school, they will not look so cute, BUT let me promise you this – the children will still LOVE this.
My daughter had an absolute blast making her tree. It is always so much fun when you see your students or children using their imagination. She was SO proud of her tree.

This is such a cute idea. Is there anyway you could make a gingerbread man version of the topper? It would be perfect for our Gingerbread Day as a little take-home activity. 🙂
Oh my! That is such a fun idea!
Thanks for sharing!
These are going to be so much fun! I think I am going to start putting them together now, minus the playdough! Thank you!
Good site! I really love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I’m wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
