Mommy Monday – Fall Handprint Tree

IMG_1062.JPG

How cute is this little fall tree painting? It’s so simple to make, and it’s always fun to use handprints, because you can look back on them and see how little their hands were! My daughter Allison had a lot of fun making this. Let’s get started!

What you need:

Construction paper (I used orange)
White paper
Fall paint colors
Paintbrush
Glue

The first thing you’re going to do is paint your child’s arm and hand with brown – this will make the trunk and branches of the tree. Allison loved this part. Then, just put it down on the white paper!

The next thing you’re going to do is make the leaves for the tree. You can use any colors you want – she used green, red, yellow, orange, and brown.

Add some grass, flowers, and whatever else you would like!

After it dries, glue it to the construction paper so it looks a little bit more festive! Don’t forget to write the date on the back. Allison said she wanted to give this to her Mimi on Thanksgiving. 🙂
