Kid's Tree Craft

Oct 27, 2013

Last month I was asked to do a craft for the kids at my church. We were telling the story of Zacchaeus (the little man that climbed the tree, remember?) and I decided to do a cute tree craft!
 This is a simple project that could easily be a "thankful tree" for fall, too! You will need: scissors, scrapbook paper, white cardstock, brown construction paper, and a glue stick.

Start by preparing all the supplies. Print out this file onto your white cardstock (optional). Cut out a leaf shape to use as a stencil and trace it onto the back of the scrapbook paper until you have traced as many as possible. Cut the leaves out. (I used almost 20 leaves for my sample to show the kids, but most of them used only 5-10. You will probably only need one sheet per kid) Then, cut a trunk shape out of brown construction paper. I just drew this simple shape:
Pull out your glue sticks and let the kids get to work!
