Handprint Tree

This handprint tree is an excellent preschool craft for kids.

If you are a teacher looking for Fall crafts for kids in your school room this year, consider making a Fall tree on a mural in your classroom.

Each child can trace their hand on a different shade of colored paper, and cut out their hand.

A large tree trunk can be painted on a mural and each child can glue on their hand as leaves.

This is also a nice fall craft to make for grandparents, which each leaf being one of the grandchildren. Or, you can do as I did here, where most of the leaves are those of my four year old daughter.


Materials Needed:   

  • Construction paper in the shades of red, orange, yellow, brown, and green
  • Large piece of background paper (I used white)
  • Brown paint and paintbrush for the trunk, or draw one using markers/crayons
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Instructions for the Handprint Tree

1. Have each child trace around their hand on the different shades of paper, and have each child cut out their hand shape.
