So the original plan for this craft was to paint Little Man's hand and arm and it would be the trunk and then paint his hands different colors to create the leaves. Let's just say Mama didn't have the motivation for that. So instead I cut a trunk out of construction paper and let Little Man use my favorite paint dotter to dot on the leaves. As we changed colors we talked about the color he was using and sometimes counted how many leaves he was making.
After creating his tree we talked about how it looked like the trees outside. We looked at the trees outside and talked about the color of the leaves. I can't wait for a somewhat warm/dry day that we can actually go out and play in the leaves.
