Pattern scrapbook paper could also be used to make these leaves, I was just trying to use what I had on hand.
1. Students cut out a tree trunk from a strip of black paper. If you can, use black art paper, not school grade construction paper as it is more gray than black.
2. Older students can cut out leaf shapes from magazine pages. I precut some for my kinder students as I wanted them to concentrate on gluing and making their tree as large as possible (glue sticks work best).
3. The background was colored in with a crayon.
I just love this art that was made today by a kinder. Thanks for letting me share it Kayla!
