Paper crafts for kids: Fun Fall Activity Tree

 We just wrapped up our Summer Activity Checklist with a really fun “ice cream for supper” party.  It was a really great way to end the Summer.

Now school has started again, and the weather is getting cooler, so I decided we needed a Fall Activity Checklist.  I thought it would be fun to put each activity on a “leaf”, and hang it on a cardboard cut out of a tree.  It isn’t fancy… my boys did all the coloring and most of the cutting… but here’s how we did it!

1)  I drew a {rough} outline of a tree on a piece of white bristol board, the boys colored it brown, and I cut it out.

2)  I traced the outline of the boys hands on some colored paper to make”leaves”.

3)  The boys cut out the leaves, and we wrote a fall activity on each one.

5)  We hung up the tree and taped the “leaves” onto the branches.

Simple, right???  As we complete each activity, the leaf will fall to the bottom of the tree, and when all the leaves are gone, we’ll start our “Winter” checklist.  :-)

PS – In case you are interested, here are the Fall Activities we included on our tree:

     1)  Bake an Apple Dessert.
     2)  Rake Leaves.
     3)  Jump in Leaves.
     4)  Make a Fall Craft.
     5)  Celebrate Thanksgiving.
     6)  Visit a Pumpkin Patch.
     7)  Carve a Pumpkin.
     8)  Decorate Halloween Cupcakes.
     9)  Go Trick or Treating.
     10)Attend a Remembrance Day Parade.

What are your family’s favorite fall activities?
