After looking through Pinterest, my girls and I decided to do Fall trees as our craft last night. There are a few different variations of this craft floating around. Because Joey is 3 1/2 and Nicki is 5, their skill levels are different. Nicki is very artistic and Joey likes to make a mess. I really liked the way the tree looked with the wine corks but figured it would be difficult for Joey to handle that, so I differentiated. Joey used bottle cleaners and Nicki used the corks. I am so happy that I let them each do it differently. It was fun to see how the trees turned out.
I put the paint on separate paper plates to avoid mixing the colors. I also had the girls do orange and red first. I felt that if they did the yellow first, it would be covered up by the darker colors. They both wanted to add a little green in the tree at the end. They said “some trees still have green on them!”
I turned the canvas upside down so the girls could reach the tops of the trees.
I LOVE them both and can’t wait to hang them in my office! Looking for more Fall crafts? Click here and check out my Pinterest board.
