Computer with Internet connection and color printer
3/8" self-adhesive Velcro dots
Small family member headshot photos
Do you know about OpenClipArt.org? It's a simple website on which graphic artists upload all sorts of clip art images and they are completely free to download and use, even for commercial purposes, without attribution necessary. On this website, I found simple tree and apple images to use for this activity. I downloaded them and printed them out on my home computer. I made the tree image take up most of an 8.5x11" paper, but then scaled the apple image down much smaller so that I could get a bunch of apples to fit on the tree.
I cut out the tree and each little apple. Then I went to my file of family member headshot photos and scaled them so that they would fit on the apples. I glued them on with a glue stick.
After I had trimmed off the excess laminating plastic, I stuck a 3/8" Velcro dot on each apple, and then the corresponding other dot on the tree itself.
