Autumn Handprint Tree

I LOVE how this Autumn Handprint Tree turned out!

Isn’t it pretty?

My girls are loving Autumn crafts right now, especially when there’s paint involved. I think it has something to do with all the fun colour mixing involved to create Autumn colours.

It’s also a fun way to explore and introduce the concept of seasonal change, which just fascinates my children right now.

The good news is, our Autumn Handprint Tree is really easy and requires minimal set-up.

Perfect if you’re working with children of different ages or looking for a group activity!

So, shall we get started?

Let’s Make It!

Using a pencil, draw a faint line around the hand and arm of your child. If your child is of preschool age or older, they may want to have a go themselves.

Next, paint the print brown.

Time for the really fun bit – colour mixing!

This is s chance for kiddos to explore colour by experimenting with primary colours to create Autumn shades of red, yellow, orange and green, oh and of course brown (every toddler can make brown!).

Using a q-tip, end of a pencil or even your child’s finger, begin adding dots around the tree.

Build the dots with different colours, try overlapping and with each dot, watch the print  transform into a Autumn Handprint Tree!
