For this activity, print out the Christmas Tree Sorting Mat 5 times on cardstock paper. Print out the ornaments on cardstock and cut them out. Children can sort the ornaments by two attributes. These can be sorted two ways. First, have them sort them by color. Then, point out the patterns on the ornaments and have the children sort them by the pattern: small dots, large dots, checks, small stripes, wide stripes.
