This cotton ball fall tree printing is such a fun project to do with kids and it creates the most amazing fall trees!
Super easy to set up! We like that!! You can paint your own tree or download one of these tree templates…
It also involves printing or dabbing the cotton balls onto the paper. Children are learning to hold different shaped instruments in their hands and print with them – paint side down. Co-ordination is key!
Printing activities are wonderful! Younger children will enjoy the repetitive nature of stamping each leaf without any specific goal in mind. Older children will appreciate the design aspect of creating leaves with a cotton ball– and will often want to use the same stamp with different colors to see how many different results they can get from the same beginning.
Children who need a boost in confidence love printing as there is no wrong result, it is easy!
We have made several other fall trees, all of the ideas work with the free printable tree templates:
- Foil Printed Fall Tree
- Cork Dotted Tree
- Printing Fall Trees with Cardboard Tubes
- Q-Tip Printed Fall Trees
