Today’s craft: Our Fall Family Tree!
I’m sure there are tons of examples of this on the innerwebs – but I modified one I saw on First School from a “family hand flower” to a “family hand tree.” Basically, we I traced each family member’s hand onto a piece of construction paper, and then we I cut each hand shape out. EJ loves to use his scissors, although his ability to cut out shapes needs work.
Then came the exciting part for EJ – the glue, of course! I had glued a large cut-out of a tree trunk onto a 11″x14″ piece of white paper, and EJ struck with the glue.
While I made suggestions for the first two leaf-hands to go on the top of the tree, EJ decided the other two would be “falling” from the tree. Well done, kiddo!
I love this little family tree! I might put our names on it later, so in 20 years I don’t forget which hand is EJ’s and which is Dieter’s.
