Autumn Tree Craft

We celebrated the first day of Autumn with this fall tree craft made out of a paper towel roll and colored paper.  I actually did this activity with the girls last year, and it is so neat to see how now as three-year-olds they can complete the project almost independently.  It was really easy, and I think the results are beautiful.  Here's the process...

First we took paper towel rolls and cut slits in them.  Then the girls folded them out to make roots and glued it to a piece of colored paper.  We cut more slits on the other side and bent them down to make branches.  I cut out some leaves with colored craft paper and invited the girls to glue them to the branches.  We sang a couple songs about leaves changing colors and falling off trees while they worked:

 These would make cute table decorations for a fall-themed table.
