🎄Christmas Tree from Montessori Number Rods and Knobless Cylinders

Adrian works a lot with Montessori Sensorial materials like Number Rods and Knobless Cylinders, but what about, in a spirit of a 🎅 Holiday, building a 🎄Christmas Tree from them?

DSC_0083Adrian first assembles Numbers Rods from ten to one to form a tree.

DSC_0083Adrian then embellishes his "tree" with knobless cylinders and other decorations.

DSC_0090After a few personal touches, the 🎄Christmas Tree is done!
