The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever Unit Study is based on a book about two mice who fall in love with the same Christmas Tree, the biggest one ever! It is a fun read for little ones and lends itself well to many fun holiday activities, crafts, and snack. I put together a few and want to share them with you- simple and enjoyable things that you can pull together with things you already have around the house. Set aside a fun day for The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever Activities or spread them out over the week.
The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever Unit Study
Visit a tree farm– Have an impromptu scavenger hunt, and search for the biggest tree you can find. Also look for the skinniest, tallest, biggest around, most lopsided, prettiest, etc. Even if you don’t buy one there you can have a lot of fun looking at them!
Decorate a mini tree– I picked up this mini tree at Hobby Lobby for less than $5. Give your child mini decorations, or let them make their own from art supplies, or even their own toys. Pompoms, pipe cleaners, buttons, ribbon, twine, small pine cones, acorns, and other similar items make great decorations. They can take their tree apart and remake it all season long.

If it is warm enough head outside with some sidewalk chalk and make a giant Christmas tree to decorate the sidewalk or driveway.
Make a sensory bin for little ones by filling it with small pieces of evergreen limbs, balls, cookie cutters, and snips of wrapping paper. Include measuring cups, spoons, and containers for filling.
Paint a Big Christmas Tree– Gather a large piece of paper like from a roll or the backside of wrapping paper.
Dip pine branches in green paint like a paintbrush and use them to create a big tree. Allow paint to dry, then decorate with markers, stickers, string, buttons, etc.
Hang your tree up and enjoy! Make it even more festive by adding peppermint or white fir essential oil to the paint to create a sensory experience.
