Kid Kraft: Easy Trees


We had some extra time before bedtime the other night, so I snuck in another fall craft.  I got this idea from MomsTown … apple trees for every age.  But, since it was somewhat past our going to the apple orchard and talking about apples … we made fall trees.

We used toilet paper tubes for the trunks … with some of them I hot glued brown craft foam on.  I cut out the top of the tree from whatever color my 2-year old wanted for her … but I had my 5-year-old trace and cut out his own.  To decorate we used fall leaf foam stickers and fall colored mini pompoms.

Easy and lots of fun!  Plus, a cute decoration as the product!
