Green Kid Crafts delights tens of thousands of kids across North America each month with fun and eco-friendly craft and STEM activities delivered right to their door through our company’s craft subscription box program. Kids are sent a monthly Discovery Box, which is packed with between 5-8 activity kits designed to foster a child’s creativity and confidence. Each month brings a new theme; past themes have included Mad Scientist, Nocturnal Animals, Around the World, and Outer Space. Our team of kid testers help design each Discovery Box as well as the fun activities and projects for our blog like this one!

This beautiful tree requires some parent involvement but the results come out beautiful!

Handprint Tree

Supplies: various fabric scraps, burlap, scissors, modge podge, brown fabric or felt.

Handprint Tree

Step 1: cover a piece of cardboard or wood with burlap. We used staples to attach to the back of cardboard. Hot glue would work also.

Step 2: trace child’s hand, up to elbow, on the brown fabric/felt. Cut this out as the trunk of the tree.

Step 3: begin cutting different sized leaves out of various fabrics. Put modge podge on the back of leaves and lay onto burlap in tree design.

Step 4: once you have enough leaves, add the hand trunk. You can add thin layer of modge podge over entire project once it’s done.
