I tried to include my tot, but he wasn't interested, which surprised me since he really enjoyed making ripped paper Indian corn last month. But this time he was happy sitting alongside my preschool coloring in a coloring book instead!
Construction Paper (red, green, yellow)
Cut out the center of the paper plate (only the outside is needed)
Rip the green construction paper into small pieces (my preschooler loved helping with this)
Cut out holly berries and candle
Squeeze glue around the outside of the plate
Place ripped paper onto of the glue
Glue on berries and candle (my preschooler found using a glue stick worked best for this)
I had my preschooler count out the holly berries and glue in groups of three. Then she counted the total number of berries when she finished. If she was a little older I would have tied in more math by using repeated addition or multiplication to find the total number of berries.
