Autumn Tree Collages – Fall Art Activities for Kids

This is a very simple yet lovely autumn collage activity, suitable for all ages and both Doodles(5) and Oodles (2.5) managed this with ease.Autumn Tree Collage - Fall Art Activities for Kids - Our Little House in the Country #autumn #fall #kidsactivities

What we did:

  • I encouraged the children to tear a piece of green paper to create the grass or hill for the foreground of their picture.
  • They then ripped brown paper (we used brown sugar paper for it’s texture) into strips to make the tree trunks
  • Using the PVA glue they arranged the paper on the blue sheet to create their grass and tree and then added the leaves and felt scraps

  • Doodles suggested that we add leaves and apples to the ground as trees in our garden are unfortunately beginning to shed their leaves and apples already!
  • D also wanted to added fluffy clouds to his sky and used cotton wool to do so.
  • When we were happy with our creations we mounted each on a slightly larger sheet of orange card

Have fun!
