Apple Tree craft

Another day, another craft!  Like I said, there are so many fun things to do in the fall, that I have to squeeze them all in somehow.  This is another one I saw in The Mailbox a teaching magazine.  A friend of mine gave me these large rolls of heavier white paper that her husband's work is done using.  So I cut large sheets off, one for each of us.  I used a brown marker and drew 2 lines to show where the tree trunk would be.  I let the kids color in the trunk.  Then using leaf shaped cookie cutters and washable green paint, we stamped green leaves on the top of our tree.  Let that dry for a little while.  I picked up some red bingo markers from Dollar Tree, and we used those to make our apples.  The kids really did love doing this, and have already asked me today what craft we can do.  This was super easy, lots of fun, and not very messy at all!
