How to Make 5 Little Christmas Trees Finger Puppets:

  1. Peel and stick (or snip and glue) one tree on each finger of the glove.
  2. Once they are secure in place, add a pair of googly eyes to each tree. Just add a dab of glue and press until secure.
  3. Now that your trees and eyes are in place, you are ready to recite your finger play! As you do, move your fingers and act out the words to the play.

5 Little Christmas Trees Fingers Poem

Five little Christmas trees
Stood all alone.
Their hearts were sad
They hadn’t found a home.
Chop! Went the ax.
Down came the tree.
And off it went with a happy family.

Four little Christmas trees
Stood all alone.
Their hearts were sad
They hadn’t found a home.
Chop! Went the ax.
Down came the tree.
And off it went with a happy family.

Three little Christmas trees
Stood all alone.
Their hearts were sad
They hadn’t found a home.
Chop! Went the ax.
Down came the tree.
And off it went with a happy family.

Two little Christmas trees
Stood all alone.
Their hearts were sad
They hadn’t found a home.
Chop! Went the ax.
Down came the tree.
And off it went with a happy family.

One little Christmas tree
Stood all alone.
It’s heart was sad
For it hadn’t found a home.
Chop! Went the ax.
Down came the tree.
And off it went with a happy family.
