We are talking about the letter “L” around here this week. In the fall that invariably leads to talks about the changing leaves. Most of the leaves on the trees near our apartment are turning brown. So I thought we could make a Thanksgiving tree with some more vibrant leaves.
This Thanksgiving leaf craft project was perfect for Littlest to help with.
Canvas (any size)
Empty toilet paper or paper towel roll
First I found a silhouette of a tree that I printed onto some brown paper and cut out. We glued our tree to a our canvas. Then it was time to start painting.
I squeezed our three colors, red, orange, and gold, onto a paper plate. Then we dipped our paper towel roll pieces into the paint and stamped them onto our tree. Once our tree had enough leaves we were finished!
And I’m planning on using our Thanksgiving tree as an activity during our Thanksgiving meal. I’m going to ask our guests to write something they are thankful for on the leaves.
