Have the children trace their hands 2 times on the green construction paper.
Next, have the children cut out their 4 handprints.
Then, have the children draw and cut out a tree trunk from brown construction paper.
After that, have the children draw small circles on yellow, red and orange construction paper.
You want them to draw about 20- 30 circles.
Once done, have the children cut out all the circles. The circles will be the apples.
Now, it’s time to assemble the Apple tree!
Using glue, have the children paste the tree trunk onto blue construction paper.
