Tree stamp craft

Following Miss Sue's reading of 'Colors of Fall' at the Southeast Steuben County Library, we had these simple stamp crafts ready for families at the PRC! We hand-drew the trees beforehand, but feel free to allow your child to make their own fun tree shapes before they get into stamping the colorful leaves! 

We also used small wine corks for the stamps, but just about anything would work -- let your imagination run wild!

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY

This craft is a great way for children to practice colors, identify parts of a tree, and learn about the changing seasons! The act of stamping also engages fine and large motor skills.

SUPPLY LIST

  • Paper (we recommend card stock or construction paper, as regular printer or notebook paper will become wrinkled with the paint)
  • Tempera paint
  • Something to stamp with (we used wine corks)
