This is a fall tree using thumbprints of different colours of paint for the leaves.
And this is Maddie's arm / handprint as the tree with bits of different coloured torn up paper as the leaves. I think it would work well too on wax/translucent paper with bits of tissue paper as the leaves.
So yes - this daycare provider is FAR more into crafts than our previous - which is great, because I'm hoping it teaches Maddie better concentration and attention-span skills. She's so all over the place now it's hard to get her to sit down and finish any craft at all.
