3 Unique Takes on the Fall Tree Craft!

We've been frequenting one of our favorite inspiration site {Pinterest, of course!} for fun fall craft ideas and stumbled upon these three unique fall tree crafts. Fingerprint fall trees can be super cute, but if you're looking for something a little different this year, check these out!

Collage/Mosaic Trees

With simple paper scraps, your students can create some dynamic autumn trees like these at Toddler Approved {we found via Messy Kids}! We think this is a great activity for toddler/preschool age children - as they tear and/or cut the paper, they'll develop much needed fine motor skills, and they'll strengthen visual discrimination and problem solving skills as they arrange the scraps into a discernible shape.

Our Little Nature Nest invites you to use dyed pumpkin seeds to create a fabulous fall tree! This is a great way to include natural elements in your artwork and it just fits!

Kim, contributing writer to No Time For Flash Cards, suggests adding some food and gross motor skill building to the project - using crushed dry pasta {either dyed with fall colors or purchasing pre-colored 'veggie' pasta} to create your fall foliage! What a fun alternative!

These are just the tip of the iceberg {so to speak}. You can find all sorts of creative takes on this traditional project around the web! Be sure to check these out and shake up your fall art plan!
