Finger Print Autumn Trees – Fall Art Activities for Kids
This is another quick and easy autumn art activity perfect for younger kids, similar to our Autumn Tree Collages, but using finger painting this time instead of collage work.
What we used:
- poster paints
- paint tray
- blue card
- paint brushes
What we did:
- We each painted a tree trunk
- Using our fingers we printed lots and lots of different coloured autumn leaves all over the tree
- Doodles and Oodles both wanted to add apples and D showed apples falling from his tree.
- Still using our fingers we added grass to the paintings and dotted a leaf or two on the grass.
- We used gold paint for some of the leaves and this added a lovely sparkle and sheen to the trees!
- To show the paintings at their best we mounted each painting onto a slightly larger sheet of orange card and displayed them in our kitchen!
Most children love to finger paint, especially younger children, it is a lovely sensory experience and great for hand-eye coordination. A variation of this activity is to use cotton buds or a paint brush to dot the leaves onto the tree, especially for children who may not like finger painting.
We would love to see how you get on with this activity – why not upload and share a photo of your paintings on our Facebook page?
colorful and fun way to welcome autumn!!
