Leaves are falling- Craft
We had another fun craft today at the YMCA. First I read a story, "The Leaves are Falling One by One." The story is actually sung to the tune of "The Ants go Marching." Before I read the story to the group I asked the kids what season we were in then we walked to the window and looked for at the colors that the leaves had changed.
After the story they got to create their own tree with leaves falling off. Very simple and easy steps.
1. Trace hands (it is your tree)
2. Color tree and add any other details such as a sun, grass, or flowers.
3. Use an ink pad and fingers to add leaves on the tree's or falling off the tree.
Here is Selah's tree...yes she traced it on her own and it appears as if she only has 4 fingers but I promise she does have all 5. :)
