Right now, it is freezing in Ohio. Mr. Not So Crafty has been braving the cold to go to work, but the rest of us have not left the house in several days. It is a perfect day to make art!
- Blue Construction Paper
- Brown Construction Paper
- White Paint
- Cotton Swabs (Between four and six work great)
- A Rubber Band
This art activity has very little prep work involved. Use the brown paper to cut a base of the tree and some rectangles for the branches. Next, wrap the rubbing band around the cotton swabs. After that, you will be ready to start creating with your little one!
Start by letting them glue the tree onto the blue paper. The older your child is, the less help they will need with this.
After the tree is assembled, it will be helpful to let it dry a bit before you let your little one start painting. However, our toddler has no patience, so we had to start painting right away. It turned out fine that way.
When your little one is done, they will have a beautiful winter tree scene!
