Fall Is Here!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYY

Fall officially begun yesterday and boy, were we excited!  Hooray for fall time crafts!

To celebrate the beginning of fall, we made a simple but cute craft! – A fall tree with leaves – finger leaves that is!

Materials:

  • Your little one’s fingers
  • Brown Paper Bag
  • Construction Paper
  • Paint – Yellow, Orange, Red
  • Glue
  • Scissors


Instructions:

First, make the tree trunk & branches using the brown paper bag. What I did was cut out a medium sized rectangle, then crumpled it into a ball.

From there, flatten out the brown paper bag rectangle, but not too much so it has the ‘tree trunk’ look. I then made a tree base and added the branches. 

Once that is created, glue it onto the construction paper.



Now…the fun part for your child! Use a paper plate or piece of paper and put about a spoonful of each color of paint. And let your child explore!







This makes such a cute craft!
