I’m so pleased to be able to share these fun autumn tree painting ideas for kids with you today, especially as I’ve also got a free tree template to share with you to make it a bit easier for you and your kids to get creative!
Autumn Tree Painting Ideas for Kids
Autumn is a great time to encourage creativity and the changing colours of the leaves make it perfect for inspiring some painting, especially as you can look at the way the colours mix together.
You can view all of the autumn tree painting ideas I’m sharing today in the video below or scroll down if you’d rather read them. Want to make sure you don’t forget any of the ideas in this post? Make sure you bookmark this page or pin an image for later. Want more ideas for autumn or fall crafts? Check out the links at the end of this post for more inspiration.
For all these crafts you will need paint, a plate to pop your paints on (makes it so much easier than a pot!) and your tree template – download your free tree template here.
Pom Pom Painting
Grab a pom pom and hold it in place with a peg, then dip it into your paint and get printing.
If you don’t mind a bit of mess then finger painting is a great way to get creative and to mix the colours up a bit, make sure you keep a cloth nearby to clean up any messy hands afterwards!
I’m never quite sure what these things are called – bath sponges? Shower puffs? Either way they’re a great material to print with.
I’ve shared a lego printed autumn tree craft before but I couldn’t resist including the idea again with this and using our tree template.
