Finger print apple tree

Finger print apple tree

This is a super easy and fun apple tree craft which can be altered for any season.  Start with a rectangular brown piece of paper for the trunk, pre-cut a green tree top shape or trace their hand and have the children glue them onto another paper.  Next have them dip their fingers in paint to create apples on the tree.  It’s fast and easy.  With older children I imagine it would look more proper, the toddlers seem to be getting ready for Halloween with these bloody looking trees.

I love adapting this to a fall tree and often give just a tree trunk and fall colored paints, for winter you could use white paint or cotton balls etc.
