A Hand Print Tree for Fall

{Fall Hand Print Tree by Mia, Age 4}
  • paper
  • brown crayon
  • Bingo markers
  • green crayon
  • newspaper 

  1. Trace around your child's hand and forearm using a brown crayon.
  2. Color in tree trunk and limbs with brown crayon. Mia also drew some extra branches.
  3. Protect your work surface by placing newspaper under your paper. Add leaves using Bingo markers in fall colors. Mia chose to use green, red, orange, and purple, all of which we bought at Dollar Tree. (Okay, when I came up with this craft idea I envisioned a fuller tree, but Mia decided that most of the leaves were falling, so that is why they are all down the sides of the tree.)
  4. As a finishing touch, draw some grass at the bottom of the paper with a green crayon. Add fallen leaves to the grass, if desired.
