Take 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.
