Simple Craft for Fall Season
During this time of year, kids are anxious to see the Autumn trees and Fall leaves.
Cut the Tissue Paper
Start by cutting your tissue paper into 1-2′ squares. They don’t have to be perfect. For this tissue paper Fall tree craft for kids, I choose to use the cute polka-dot tissue paper I already had around the house. You can use shades of red, orange, yellow, and green, and keep the remainder for all of your fun Fall crafts.
This is a great way to talk about real leaves with the kids. What colors are leaves? What colors do they change to in the Fall? What happens to leaves in the Winter?
Draw the Tree Outline
Use your brown marker to draw the tree trunk and outline of the tree’s leaves onto the white paper.
Make Tissue paper Leaves
Now that you have the outline of a tree on the white paper, the kids will have a great time making the leaves out of tissue paper.
To do so, the kids will simply pinch a tissue paper square, and glue it to the tree top. Depending on the ages of your kids, you may have to help them spread glue in small areas. The older children can find their groove, and glue down the leaves of their Autumn tree craft however they see fit. That’s part of the creative fun!
They will fill in the entire tree top space with tissue paper leaves, making colorful Fall trees. This is a wonderful activity for building fine motor skills, because they have to use their little hands to grasp and pinch each tissue paper square. Here are 15 Best Ways to Improve Fine Motor Skills.
Finish the Tree Trunk
To finish the easy Fall tree craft for kids, simply color in the tree trunk. If you’d like to add another element, you could use brown construction paper to create the tree trunk, instead of coloring it in. Whatever your kids prefer. Either will be fantastic fun.
Fall Tree Craft Display
Your arty crafty kids will want to show off their creative Fall tree crafts. If at home, you can hang your tissue paper tree craft in their room. If in the classroom, you can hang the young kids’ artwork in the hallway, or create a fun Fall bulletin board display. Their Fall art will be the perfect way to fill your negative space with all the good feelings of Fall colors. Happy crafting, friends!
