Tissue paper,button apple trees: a sensory craft!
We made these tissue paper, button apple trees today. Again, I wanted to use materials that were interesting for the Hooligans to work with. You can check the sandpaper, foil and cork trees that we made earlier this week.
Trace your tree on textured paper:
We traced their arms and hands on some groovy wall paper samples that look just like wood. The tracings became the trunks and branches of the trees.
Add your tissue paper leaves:
Next the Hooligans crumpled up squares of green tissue paper to form the leaves of the tree. I absolutely LOVE using tissue paper this way for crafts. We’ve made so many tissue crafts. It’s so easy, and pretty much mess-free, and the kids love the whole crumpling part.
