Halloween Tree Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

I think this simple little cut and paste craft turned out very cute!  

There are a variety of versions to the craft to add complexity for older children.

The craft is simple enough for young kids to contribute but still fun for even mom to make.  I like doing the tissue paper version but it's tough for preschoolers to make -- the templates are more appropriate for them.
There are a number of variations on this craft depending on which templates you print:

  1. Template Version (younger children):  print the trunk template and the leaves template and paste them together.
  2. Tissue Paper Version (older children):  cut 1.5 inch squares of tissue paper, wrap around the eraser end of a pencil and glue to the trunk template.
craft instructions

Rather than using the Trunk template, you can decorate a "homemade" trunk (to make the trunk, trace your child's arm from the elbow up, including the fingers)
