Preschool Christmas Tree Counting Activity

My little buckaroo has been very busy this Christmas year. He likes singing these songs from our Gingerbread Activity post. He made a Christmas Wreath for our front door, and this week he created a Christmas tree counting game from popsicle sticks.



  • Large popsicle stick
  • green paint
  • wide paint brush
  • container for painting
  • paper
  • printer
  • nickel
  • pencil
  • crayons
  • glue

  1. Paint sticks  in a container. I used a metal roasting pan from the dollar store. {image below} and set sticks aside to dry.
  2. Print out numbers on your printer.
  3. With a pencil, use a nickel to draw a circle around the numbers.
  4. Color them with crayons.
  5. Cut out circled numbers.
  6. Glue circled numbers to popsicle sticks.

Use a foil pan to contain the chaos!

Here he is, hard at work on those fine motor skils…
