Kids Craft: Fall Trees and Colorful Leaves
This is a great fall project to make with the kids because they get to use a part of themselves and it can easily turn into a full-fledged Art lesson. Introduce the students to the ideas behind Pointillism and artists, such as Seurat, who successfully used dots to create amazing works of Art.
- good quality paper to handle a bit of paint
- paint (red, yellow, and blue can be combined to create any number of colors)
- cotton swabs
- pencil & crayons
Start off by tracing your hand and arm. Be sure to line them up on the page. Once done color in with crayons.
The fun part comes next, just get busy using the cotton swab to create dots…I mean leaves.
Fall is such a great time to have fun and get creative!
Hope you enjoy this craft and be sure to stop by for more ideas!
