Plastic bottle tops
Water Trolley ( or if you prefer, a sensory tray filled with rice or similar)
Some material or a plastic tablecloth ( something that you can draw on with a permanent marker- not a water based marker as it will run if it gets wet)
HOW TO MAKE YOUR ACTIVITY
Write the letters of the alphabet on the bottle tops with a permanent marker.
Draw your Christmas tree and trace around the bottle tops to make the 26 alphabet lights.
Write the letters of the alphabet in order from the top of the tree to the bottom.
NOW THE FUN PART !!!
Encourage the children to take turns to scoop out one bottle top with a laundry scoop.
Get the children to name the letter they scooped and put it in the correct position on the tree.
Keep fishing until the children have collected the entire alphabet.
Admire your Alphabet Christmas Tree.
