Preschool Art: Fall Fingerprint Tree


Here's a bit of fall fun for the preschool crowd. This handprint tree with thumbprint leaves is simple for preschoolers to make themselves. It can get a bit messy, but that's part of the fun. Follow the photo tutorial to create your own fall foliage.



Use brown paint for the trunk, but if you're out (like I was) mix together purple, yellow and a little black. Of course,  preschoolers will find mixing the paint to be just as much fun as the painting the tree...


If there are gaps in the paint from the print they can easily be filled in with a little extra paint and a brush.
