|Christmas Chrismons Tree Poster|
1. Individual or
The finished size is almost 2 feet by 3 feet!
Made of 12 panels or sections that kids can decorate first and then put together.
Great Christian Christmas decoration for a hall, wall or door!
Photo realistic Christmas tree with Christ symbols embedded on it.
The objective is cooperation by the class in decoration and assembly! With 12 pieces, you can allocate students with the greatest zeal to sections with more to decorate, while those with less interest to decorate can get panels with fewer symbols to decorate or get the job of cutting and assembling the panels. The tree does need a final topper and some base decoration too. (15-16 assignable tasks, but if you have fewer students, you can have the person who decorates a piece cut the appropriate sides. And same students can assemble the whole thing together)
Teachers can print and put up as room decoration in any grade room. It will work with no further decoration, but glitter, sequins or anything similar will make it sparkle.
Discuss the symbols. See our other material for explanation of symbols.
| Grade 2 through 6th grade do-it-yourself,
or for K - Gr 1 with teacher or aid for assembly
* If undecorated
If you have no white or gold doo dads, the class can still do this as a project together in cutting and assembling, and creating a top ornament. The stand/base can be any colors.
1. Print all the pages
in color if possible.
2. ASSIGN the 12 sections to students. 1-1 through 4-3 to decorate
Section 1-1 is blank, except for cutting and glue instructions. This is for you put in a greeting or your class identification.
3. DECORATE SYMBOLS: Chrismons are traditionally
only colored gold and white.
Students sharing a shape (meaning a shape that overlaps a joint) should cooperate and decorate using the same colors and materials. Talk to each other - communicate!
4. CUT the edges as indicated on each sheet. For the best result, barely cut off the gray line.
5. Select all 3 pieces for row 1 and
glue together as shown on each piece. Suggest Tacky glue so you can
move to line up perfectly. 1-1, 1-2, 1-3
6. Select all 3 piece for row 2 by itself. Match gray lines and shapes perfectly. Glue these 3 pieces together. 2-1, 2-2, 2-3
9 . Put Glue all along bottom of the 3 pieces joined together as row 1 and lay all of row 2 over it and match the gray line and symbols. Sequence is pictured below for final Christmas Chrismons Tree construction.
10. Do the same thing for adding row 3 to row 2. And last add row 4.
12. The tree does need a final topper (angel or star) and some base decoration around the trunk. too.
