Footprint Painted anything is always special – and FUN FUN FUN!!
Children LOVE walking in paint!
This Autumn Tree art activity is sure to get those legs moving!
BIG art is always great as it requires whole body participation!
‘Walking a tree’ is also a fantastic collaborative art project!
We did ours together… and enjoyed it A LOT!!!
Footprint Painted Tree Materials:
Big Paper – I used a paper roll and then cut two bits off for the tree and one for the trunk.
Paint – Brown – Red – Yellow – Orange
Willing Little Feet – not difficult to find!!
I added paint to baking tins… Brown in the one and Red and Yellow in the other… (careful can be slippery)
We started with the trunk – walking up and down to make a nice thick trunk.
Then we balanced very careful heel to toe to make some thinner branches…
Once the trunk and branches were dry we walked on our leaves!
OH BOY did we have fun!!
I had added red and yellow paint – with the notion that enough walking would create orange anyway!
Great color mixing idea!
This is about the most fun you can have with ‘Autumn Leaves’
Children love squishing the paint between their little toes – and they love making footprints!!
Hope you enjoy this as much as we did!!
