  • Scissors
  • Glue


  • 1 Paper plate
  • Tissue paper red, yellow and orange
  • Paper or card brown


  • Cut some square shapes out of coloured tissue paper - I've gone with red yellow and orange but greens and browns would all work.
  • Stick the squares onto a paper plate.
  • Next cut out a shape for your tree trunk - you'll need to do this for younger kids but older ones can do it themselves. As an alternative to a more 'traditional' tree trunk you could draw around your child's hand and a bit of their arm to make a fall tee craft that's a bit more of a keepsake or if you fancy getting the paints out you could even do one as a hand print (and a bit of armprint?!).
  • Stick the tree trunk onto the paper plate.


I've used PVA glue for this craft (I think this is known as school glue in other countries) but a glue stick should work just as well and will dry quickly.
