T is for Tree Handprint Art

This T is for Tree alphabet craft uses some paint and simple supplies. It’s always a lot of fun to for the kids to see how their hand print can turn into something else. For this activity, we use brown to make a handprint for tree branches, and then use green to make the tree’s leaves. It’s a simple way to make a cute little tree craft!

Materials:

  • Letter “T” is for Tree printable
  • Brown paint
  • Green paint
  • paint brush
  • wipes to clean hands

 

First, print the printable to go along with this craft. We like to practice the letter on the first page before making our handprint, and we do the free letter t worksheets while the tree handprint is drying.
