Tree Art Activity for Preschoolers

If trees cry, laugh, dance, and dream through their leaves, they probably make art through them, too. Gather leaves from outdoors — or, if leaves are not readily available, cut out your own with construction paper — and beautify your home the way a tree would.

Leaves of different shapes and sizes
String or yarn
Glue or glue stick
Glitter pens

1. String multiple leaves together with yarn to make a garland.
2. Collect different sizes and shapes of leaves, then glue them together to make animal shapes. Use a marker to add tails, ears, and faces.
3. Use a glitter pen to draw designs directly on a leaf.
