Add some kid-friendly holiday cheer and a charming yuletide ritual to your home with this wooden magnetic holiday tree! The set includes 24 magnetic ornaments plus a shining star for Christmas day-all of which fit neatly in the attached box at the base of the tree. Kids can pick a favorite design to place on the tree every day, following the numbered outlines to fill the tree right up to Christmas. They’re going to also love to switch, move, and rearrange the pieces to customize their very own tree countless times. Decorating your Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar will not only change into a highly-anticipated annual tradition, it can also be a great way to help promote and make stronger many developmental skills as children grow. Use the numbers on the tree to help young children with number recognition and to discover ways to count both forwards and backwards; as they get older, ask children to add the numbers in a row. Play games with the ornaments to help develop color recognition and memory skills. For example, have kids find all the ornaments that have red but no green or name all the colors on individual ornaments. Or, ask them to make a choice five ornaments and study them carefully; then, have them to close their eyes whilst you remove one ornament. Can they guess which one is missing? The learning possibilities are endless!
