Handprint Autumn Tree

Nathan and Nicholas made these cute little handprint/fingerprint trees for fall.

Materials needed: blue construction paper and red, yellow, brown, green and orange paint.  Extra items we used were white paint and cotton balls.
Paint your child's hand and forearm with brown paint

 Have them press their arm and hand onto the paper.

Using their fingerprints as falling leaves

For fun you can paint grass and clouds...Nathan used cotton balls for his clouds.

We've made these before and it's always fun to compare their hand sizes to the previous years.
