This craft is so much fun and perfect for the fall season! Have your kids try this with different paints and different sized leaves!

Here’s what you need:

  • Leaves

This craft will surely make a statement on the tree.

Here’s what you need:

  • White acrylic craft paint
  • Sponge brush
  • Round ornaments
  • Empty egg carton for drying
  • Black and orange sharpie markers

1. Have your kid paint one of their hands with the white acrylic craft paint and use the sponge brush to spread the paint all over the hand. (Or you can put the paint on a tray and have your kid dip their hand in it).

2. Place the ornament in the palm of your child’s hand. Tell them to hold the ornament like they’re holding a tennis ball in their hand for a few seconds.

3. Take the ornament from their hand and place in an empty egg carton to dry.

4. Once the paint is dry, take the black and orange markers and draw snowman details! For instance, with the black marker draw buttons, face, and a hat. With the orange marker draw a carrot nose!
