Have your child use their fingers to make the ” leaves” with the red, yellow, and orange paint. There is no right or wrong way to do this, so let them go to town. Once they are finished, let dry completely.

This craft is so easy and so much fun! I had my girls trees laminated at Staples so that we can pull them out year after year.

Happy Fall Friends!
