Tree fingerpainting activity

Help your little one have lots of messy fun fingerpainting their own tree.

Use this outline of a tree as the base for a colourful painting of their own.

  • Paint with lush greens in summer and warm orange colours in autumn
  • Use their littlest fingers for small leaves and their thumbs for bigger ones
  • Stick leaves, blossom or seeds to your tree for a wild texture

Why not get everyone involved and create your own family tree? Share this stencil with friends and family and plant a whole forest of fingerpainted trees.
