Apple Tree Number Match

Today I was cleaning through some old files when I came across this felt tree set I had made for my oldest daughter several years ago (I'm afraid to admit how many--lol!) This ended up being a great activity to do with my 3yr. old daughter today.

I traced tree tops onto green felt and tree trunks onto brown felt. Then I numbered the tree tops and trunks. Next I had my daughter match the numbers.

Then we worked together putting the trees in numerical order.

Next we placed pom-pom "apples" on the tree to match the numbers.

Another extension would be to have an apple shape and use position words such as:
"Place the apple behind the number two tree" or "Place the apple on top of the number 3 tree" etc.

I created two options for this activity: 1) print the trees onto cardstock or 2) trace onto felt. Both are included in the download.

Here's a download I made last year that would also go perfectly with an apple theme.

 And here's an apple collage we did last year which was posted at 3 Boys and a Dog
