Written by: Kimberly Vondran [Kimberly is a teacher from San Francisco, CA]

Age:

2-5 years

Activity Summary:

Little ones will create trees by making arm and hand prints.

What You Need:

•Brown paint for the tree trunk
•Colored paint for the leaves (fingerpaint or paint mixed with a little soap will work so it is easier to wash off)
•Paint Brushes or other objects to apply paint

What You Do:

Teachers, adults, or older friends may help younger children with this project in painting the childs arm.
  1. Paint child's inner forearm, palm, and fingers.

  2. Help child press arm and hand down on paper.

  3. When arm is lifted, you will have a tree trunk made from an arm and palm print, and they will have branches made from their fingers.
