  • tear the green paper to create hills and stick to the lower half of the blue sheet.
  • next tear the brown paper into strips to create a tree trunk and stick onto the green and blue paper.
  • dip the cotton balls into the glue and stick all over the top of the tree trunk
  • dab paint onto the cotton balls with autumn colours to create autumn/fall coloured leaves
  • sprinkle glitter (gold and red) over the the paint covered cotton balls.
  • finger paint some fallen leaves or apples onto the grass.
  • display with pride 🙂
