September Apple Tree

September Apple Tree

September's "Handy" Treasure!  They can be done with any age and make great keepsakes to show your child’s growth or gifts to send to the grandparents.  You can make these crafts by tracing, painting, or pressing your hands.  If your child does not like to get their hands painted, try tracing their hand instead.  If you have a little one, paint their foot instead of their hand.  

September - Apple Tree
Supplies: brown paper, scissors, glue stick, green and red washable paint, paint or sponge brush, paper plate, white construction paper, and wet wipes
Supplies can be purchased at Michael’s Craft Store

Directions:  I always put down an old plastic table cloth left over from a birthday party as our work space.  Trace and cut out a tree trunk from the brown construction.  If your child is old enough, have them do the cutting.  Glue down on the white construction paper.  Pour green paint on a paper plate and have your child press or paint their hand and put on the paper as the leaves.  Repeat and repaint when necessary.  For a younger child, paint their foot.  Once dry, use the red paint to make apples on the tree using their thumb.  Be sure to write their name and date on the art work.
