Handprint Popcorn Tree Fall Craft!
When Autumn Comes written by Robert Maass is a wonderful book to read to children about the Fall season. And, there are so many great activities to go along with the book, like this Popcorn Tree fall craft for kids.
While the kids are making their Autumn Popcorn Tree craft, play The Fall Song for kids in the background.
The Fall Song for kids is a nice complement to this super fun kids Fall craft activity!
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s craft an Autumn Popcorn Tree!
Craft supplies you will need:
- Brown paint
- Popped corn
- Ziploc bags
- Paint or food coloring
- Paper plates
- Paint brush
- White card stock
Help the children pour brown paint onto a paper plate.
Next, have the children dip their hand in the paint and press their hand down on white card stock.
Using a paint brush, have the children paint a tree trunk on the white card stock.
Then, in a Ziploc bag, have the children add in a bit of paint and a handful of popcorn.
Once done, have the children close the Ziploc bag and shake the bag. Have the children try and get as much paint on the popcorn as possible.
While the first batch of popcorn is drying, have the children repeat the process with another paint color.
When ready, have the children glue the popcorn to the tree trunk and the ground.
And, voila, the children have now made an Popcorn Tree fall craft! What a fun craft activity for a Fall or Autumn-theme school unit!
