Sponge Fall Trees

I love the fall and I love trees and leaves. So this is the perfect project for us. Plus it is simple and fun.

You will need: Paper, paint, paint brush and sponges. Any kind of sponge will do. I used a fluffy sponge and a make-up sponge.

Apple Tree

First make a trunk. I used Cheyanne's arm and hand print.

Sponge on the green leaves.

Use finger prints for apples.

Fall Trees

Foot prints for trunks.

Use green, red, orange, yellow and brown paint to sponge on colorful leaves.

Sponge some green on the bottom for grass.

I once made these at the preschool that I worked at. I had forgotten all about them. Thanks for reminding me and thanks for all the other great ideas. You help me out a lot when I'm in a slump.

How fun! My son is really starting to love painting, so this would probably be a blast for him!
