So, what are you waiting for? Let’s paint an apple tree!
Craft items you will need:
- Green, brown and red paint

Have the children paint their forearm with brown paint.
When ready, have the children stamp their arm on white card stock. This will be the tree trunk.
Have the children wash the paint off their arms.
Next, have the children paint their hand green.
Once done, have the children press their hand on the white card stock, right above the tree trunk. This will be the tree top.
After that, have the children wash the paint off their hand.
