Make your own Fall tree

It was a nice day so the kids and I went on a natural walk outside to fine some pine cones and leaves for a project.

Then "J" came across this nice branch laying on the ground and said, "mom, this would be nice to make our own tree." Then a light bulb when off in my head, so we brought it home and made a project.

Very inexpensive project and fun. We gathered different leaves and made our own Fall Tree.

This is a great fine motor activity for kids when rubbing the crayon over the leaves, then using the hole punch and twisting the pipe cleaning on the leaves.

You lay the leaf under the paper and rub the crayon over to make the imprints. They turned out so cool. We did different colors to make them look more Fall like.

Then cut the leaves out and punch a hole in the top, place pipe cleaner thru and hung on the tree.

"J" has showed everyone this tree, when he skyped the grand parents he showed them, then the neighbors. It was really cute how excited he got over the tree.
