Age: 2-5 years
Little ones will create trees by making arm and hand prints.
What You Need:
•Brown paint for the tree trunk
•Colored paint for the leaves (fingerpaint or paint mixed with a little soap will work so it is easier to wash off)
•Paint Brushes or other objects to apply paint
What You Do:
Teachers, adults, or older friends may help younger children with this project in painting the childs arm.
- Paint child's inner forearm, palm, and fingers.
- Help child press arm and hand down on paper.
- When arm is lifted, you will have a tree trunk made from an arm and palm print, and they will have branches made from their fingers.
- The project could be left as a tree with no leaves, or when it is dry the child could decorate the branches by making leaves with their fingerprints - using diffent color fingerpaints for the leaves.
