This is one of my favorite art projects. The idea is so simple—make a tree by glueing tree pieces to paper. But the concept goes way beyond that.
You're teaching your child about art, about trees, and you get to take them outside to collect your supplies, too!
What You'll Need:
- tree outline
- leaves, twigs, bark
- Cut a large piece of paper into a simple tree outline design.
- Take your child outside with you to find leaves, twigs, bark, and maybe even a pinecone or two. Talk about the trees and how they grow. Touch the branches and roots, too.
- Help your child spread glue over the paper and then stick your leaves, twigs, and bark onto your tree in the right spots.
