Make your own autumn trees

 

What you will need for your autumn trees activity

 
  • A sheet of clear sticky back plastic or contact paper
  • 1 brown indelible pen
  • Brown watercolour paint (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Sellotape
  • A range of fallen autumn leaves in lots of different colours & sizes


How to make your own autumn trees


1. Using the brown pen, draw an outline of a tree trunk and branches on the non-stick side of the sticky back plastic or contact paper.

2. Either leave the trunk or branches blank or colour them in using the brown pen or brown watercolour paint.

3. Once the paint or pen has dried out, peel off the backing to the sticky back plastic or contact paper.

4. Hold the non-stick side to a glass door (wooden door, cupboard door or other hard service) then stick down the corners and edges with the sellotape, making sure the sticky side faces out.

5. Put all the leaves into a large box or bowl so they’re easy for your little one to use.

6. Let them rummage through the box and choose leaves to stick onto the sticky back plastic or contact paper to decorate the tree.
 

Tip

 
  • If you don’t have any autumn leaves to hand you can always use fake leaves or flowers from garlands or find some inspiration at the $2 Shop, Spotlight etc.
