Paper Towel Roll Fall Tree

 Fall Tree Supply List: 1 paper towel roll, leaves, scissors, glue, sheet of green cardstock, red, yellow & brown paint

 Begin by painting your paper towel roll brown.

 Use the red, brown & yellow paints to make prints on the cardstock.  These will be your fallen leaves.

Cut 8-10 slits on one end of your paper towel roll.  These should go down about 1/3 of the way.

Bend the pieces of paper towel roll back and glue leaves to the ends.

Glue your paper towel roll tree to the cardstock and allow to dry.

Book Suggestion: Another favorite by Lois Ehlert, Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf examines the life of a sugar maple tree through the eyes of a child.  The striking pictures are delightful and a wonderful book for the fall.

My son has been collecting leaves every time we go out, he fill the bottom of the stroller with them. Pretty sure he'll like this activity, thanks for sharing!

My Little M made a my little pony house, I think a nice fall tree just outside would be a great addition!

I love that you used real leaves. It turned out really cute. Thanks so much for linking up to the AfterSchool party.
