Thumbprint Tree

ages 2-5


Supplies

Paper (brown construction & a light color like white), stamp pads (green or variety of fall colors), soap to wash hands when done!

Activity Detail

This is a fun art project for little ones! To get ready, cut out a tree trunk and branches on brown construction paper and glue it to a light colored piece of paper. Then, take your child's thumb (or let your child do this part herself) and put it on a green ink pad. Next, let your child begin putting thumbprints all over the branches to add leaves to the tree. (Note: If your child is learning about letters, you can also talk about how thumb and tree both begin with the letter T.)

My son's preschool class did something similar with every child in the class putting their thumbprint on each tree. It was a cute keepsake. Would be a fun party activity too.

You can also use a red stamp pad to make apples on the tree.

My son likes finger and thumb print "art" so I will definitely try this one!

In the fall you could have them do different colors of ink and discuss why leaves change color and fall off the tree.
