  • Glue
  • Marker
How to make your back to school countdown tree
  • Cut out the tree trunk twice to make it long enough and tape together.
  • Cut out red apples and green leaves. Glue the leaves onto the apple.
  • Cut out a large green cloud shape for the tree and glue that and the brown trunk to the white paper.
  • Cut out a green worm and draw a smile on it.
  • Cut a large slit in the smile.
  • Turn the worm over and put glue only on the outer edges of the worm.
  • Place on the white paper.
  • Tape all the apples on the tree and when each day passes put corresponding apple in the worm's mouth until all the apples are gone.
