apple tree craft

the other day the kids and i created our own apple tree.  here's what we used...

brown paper bag
butcher paper
paint- red, green, brown and yellow
paint brushes and paint scraper
an apple

first, we cut out the bottom of a brown paper bag that i got at the grocery store. we covered it in brown paint and used our paint scrapers to add texture to it. we wanted it to look like a tree trunk.

second, we painted the butcher paper with green and yellow paint to be used for the leaves.

next, we used red paint to dip our apple in and make apple prints on the butcher paper.

we allowed everything to dry completely. the next day, we assembled the tree.  we cut everything out and glued it on.
