Celebrate Autumn and make a cool tree with all different colored fingerprint leaves.

You’ll need

  • light colored paper
  • dark colored paper
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • stamp pads in colors of fall leaves

 

You, or your little leaf maker, will cut different sized strips of brown or dark colored paper.  Arrange them on the white paper in the shape of a tree.  You can talk about how a tree’s branches stretch upward, toward the sun.  When you’re pleased with the design of your tree, glue down the “branches”.

Use stamp pads to make all the leaves!  We used red, orange and green.  Brown would have been a nice addition, too.  Don’t forget to put some down below the tree – just like real leaves, your fingerprint leaves are falling to the ground.

I am a certified K-12 Art Educator who lives, works, and blogs from Philadelphia, PA. I have a background in the studio arts (printmaking, photography, fiber arts and design), and am interested in making, collaborating, collecting, and recording things. One of my main goals as a grown-up is to help kids increase their visual literacy, by exposing them to art history, introducing vocabulary, and teaching kinesthetic art making skills. These lessons in visual literacy often take place in an intentional classroom setting, but just as well might happen at home, working on a project!
