Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Tree

January 10, 2012 at 5:44 pm (The Preschool Files)


My class is in love with the book “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.” And I have been wanting to make some file folder games for the classroom anyway. So here is the newest addition to our shelves.

When you aren’t the most artistic person in the world, it helps to have some imaginative kids to work with.

Start with an open file folder. Cut a rectangle from brown felt for the tree trunk and some triangles from green felt for the leaves of the coconut tree. I used craft glue to put
it together in the folder.

Now you could just write your letters on felt and cut them out, but we had some foam alphabet stickers and I thought they were cute, so I stuck those to felt and then cut around them. Your letters can go in a ziplock bag or an envelope that can be attached to the back of the folder.

Easy peasy!
