I’m excited to see the season changing to fall because I have so many fun kids crafting projects lined up. Last week we made fall themed trees.
This project used items I found in my crafting closet:
-empty Play-Doh containers
-cardboard (cut into tree branch shape)
-Elmer’s glue (not shown)
-brown, green, orange, and yellow paint (not shown)
I directed my daughter to start by gluing the cardboard tree trunk to a piece of cardstock. Then I told her to use the brown yarn and glue to add bark to the trunk. Once she had the trunk completed I gave her the paint and Play-Doh containers. Pouring the paint on a plate eliminated the need for a paintbrush. The Play-Doh lids are then used with the paint to stamp fall leaves on the tree. This was a very fun project and a great learning opportunity.
