This is a cardboard tree that we made to encourage “good deeds” during Ramadan. I first trace a tree trunk on a cardboard. Then I copied this onto another cardboard. Cut out both the tree trunk.
Make a slit in the middle from the top on one tree trunk. On the second one make a slit in the middle bottom up. Then slide the the two tree trunks into each others slit to make a 3D tree. You can put some glue to make it stronger.
I then searched the internet for some leaf template (you can trace your own if you want). Every time my son did something good a leaf “bloomed” on the tree. This tree was proudly displayed on Eid.
My son quickly caught on with this idea. It helped promote kindness to others, nice language etc. You can set some predetermined “good deeds” if you want. What I discovered was, kids look at “good deed” a whole lot different than what we might expect. Go ahead make a tree and discover it for yourself.
