Paper crafts for toddlers and kids are so simple and easy – which is why we do a lot of them here! My 3 year old is just getting the hang of using safety scissors and glue. These crafts help to promote their use, two skills he will need when he starts school. Since it is Fall and the leaves are changing, I wanted to do something seasonal with the kiddo that we could hang on the fridge (where he insists all of his artwork should go!).
I can remember doing this Autumn Tree Paper Craft when I was in Kindergarten, and it only uses simple art supplies we already have in our home. This is also a great time to discuss the leaves changing color, turning this into an educational project! Read on to find out how to easy this is to do!
Autumn Tree Paper Craft for Toddlers & Kids
You Will Need:
- Construction paper – Green, Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow
- Trace a tree trunk onto the brown construction paper. If your little one is old enough for scissors, allow him to cut the trunk out. If not, do this step for him.
- Glue the tree trunk to the bottom of the green construction paper.
- Instruct the child to tear pieces of the brown, red, orange, and yellow paper to create leaves. Add a few at the base of the trunk to symbolize leaves that have fallen from the tree.
- Glue the “leaves” around the tree trunk, mixing the colors just like a real Autumn tree!
That’s it! The finished result will be a autumn paper craft for toddlers & kids that is definitely fridge-worthy!
