Instructions:
Cut each toilet paper roll in half or in thirds so you have 24 circles that are about 2-inches tall. Paint both the inside and outside of each circle green. Let them dry.

Once the paint is dry, glue them onto the poster board into the shape of a Christmas tree. Let the glue dry.

Trim the poster board around the toilet paper rolls, into the shape of a Christmas tree. Place a small candy or other treat into each circle. Starting on December 1st, take out one piece of candy or treat per day. Continue this every day until Christmas.
