Even though the temperatures are still way to hot for fall, I am longing for those crisp mornings and the crackle of leaves underfoot. I was thinking about previous years and thought about this quick art activity I did with Ruble when he was younger.
After reading Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert, I sat with Ruble and we made a pretty autumnal tree of our own.
- Green construction paper
- Brown string
- Liquid glue
- Green, red, yellow tissue paper cut into small squares
- Glue stick
Form the shape of a tree trunk using the string and liquid glue. Older preschoolers can probably do this on their own while younger preschoolers will need help.
Then, have your child glue “leaves” to the tree.
What a perfect way to celebrate fall.
