Autumn Handprint Tree

Nov 04, 2016

Supplies Required

  • Red, Yellow, Orange and Brown finger paints
  • Paint brush
  • 3 Single Q-Tips
  • 3 Bunches of 5 Q-Tips secured with an elastic
  • White cardstock paper
  • Wet wipes


How To

1.)     Paint your little one’s hand with the brown finger paint and press on to the white cardstock paper (top middle of the page) to make the top of the tree and branches. Make sure you leave room above the tree to put leaves later. Wipe off your little one’s hand with the wet wipes.

2.)    With the paint brush and brown paint extend the paint from the bottom of the hand to the bottom of the piece of paper to create the tree trunk.

3.)   Drip 1 bunch of Q-Tips into the yellow paint and blot leaf bunches on the tree branches. Repeat with the orange and red paint.

4.)   With the single Q-Tips you can make leaves appear to be falling and some on the ground at the base of the tree.

5.)   Let dry and display proudly!!
