I am so loving all the fall projects my students have been creating lately. I mean really, who doesn’t love little kids art! Here is a new project we created with all our newly created painted paper and an adorable book shown here.

My students loved traveling through the year of changing trees, page by page.

Our inspiration was the autumn trees.

To get started you will need:

First, using some small strips of paper, trim the corners to create hills, overlap and glue on the bottom of a colored 12″ x 18″ construction paper.

 

Next, cut a large cloud shape out ofย painted paper for the top of the tree.

A strip of painted paper was cut and glued down to represent the trunk and branches.
