You will need:
*The tree template printed out on the background paper. You can also just have the kids draw it in pencil.
*Kids willing to be creative (I got 2 out of 3 for this one)
|Click on this tree to open it big and then you can right click the image and select save as. Or just drag it to your desktop. The format is 8.5 x 11.|
*Print the tree on paper. I had some 13x19 papers so i printed it big.
*Now ask the children to cover the tree with patterned paper cut in little strips so that you can't see any of the outlines except the top branches.
*Once that is complete, the can print the leaves using ink pads and their fingers.
* it took my girls about an hour to complete it.
* We were on a schedule, but if you have more time use some water colors and add some grass/clouds. You can also make some birds from patterned paper and add it to the tree.
Here's a few pictures of the process:
