Hand and Scrunched Tissue Paper Tree
May 7th, 2010 by Craftylocks

hand-tissue-treeTake children’s hand shapes and create a forest.

Paper crafts using children’s hands shapes are a great buzz for them. They get to make something cool and integral to the whole thing is their hand.

This time trace around part of the arm as well to make the trunk, the fingers will be the branches. Trace the shape onto brown paper and glue that onto your background paper. Then chop up lots of autumn or fall colored tissue paper into small pieces. Scrunch the bits of tissue paper up, dunk them in a bit of glue and then pop onto the tree.

You could also make a spring version of the tree and use pink and white tissue paper. If you like using tissue paper like this then check out Blossoming Tissue Tree for another idea.

There are more paper crafts for children for this season at Autumn or Fall Crafts for Children

This ‘Hand Tree’ was sent in by Agnes.
“This was made partially by my 4 year old son, for the birthday of his grandfather.”

So glad you like it – I hope the kids have fun with it. You are so right with it being easy for young children but still a very neat result which they can be proud of. Thanks for the feedback.

I think so too Carolyn – and it would not matter if the bits of paper were a bit loose, it would just be a wind-blown tree. There is also something very satisfying about screwing up bits of paper, and anything with a hand shape is a winner – I hope your kids have fun with it!

I LOVE this idea…I am a preschool teacher and I think even the youngest of kids could do this project. Thank you for posting this awesome project!

Thanks Rachel, it will be exciting to see the tissue tree on http://www.oneprettything.com. Thinking about the seasons options, I think a pink and white tree for spring will look so pretty – I will have to do one too!

Thanks Elizabeth, and I liked your suggestion on your forum that you could also use mini colored puff balls – I am thinking green cut out leave shapes and mini red puff balls = apple tree:-).
