Christmas Tree Cones

Using styrofoam cones, your little one decorated and painted their own little holiday trees!
Your little ones first learned about the shape of a cone, and how it is similar and different from that of a triangle.
The next phase of the activity included painting the cone and adorning it with plastic golf tees and lacing these “tees” with small ornaments. This activity incorporated several developmental domains.
Learning about new shapes fosters spatial recognition, encourages mathematical reasoning, increases vocabulary, and helps young children make connections to the world around them.
Puncturing the cones with the golf tees, and lacing the ornaments onto the tees provided your little one with ample attempts to strengthen their fine motor and pre-writing skills.
