As part of the homemade Halloween decoration extravaganza, we made the spooky tree paintings.
Mix paint with water to make a wash. I used red and yellow.
Brush the wash across a piece of paper to cover the whole sheet of paper, or at least as much as your toddler can handle before he is putting more paint on the table than his paper.
Allow plenty of drying time. I let ours dry over night, since it was a kid project and the paint is so watery it took that long for the paper to dry.
Trace hands on black paper, then cut out.
Glue hand to the painted paper.
Chobie's (middle) is acutally my favorite. I helped him cut out his hand, but I followed his kind of shaky, uneven line and it really makes it look like a knotted old tree.
