You will need:

A large piece of white paper

Red, green and brown paint

Paint brushes

Take a child’s hand and put brown paint on it half way up the arm.  Put the arm and hand down on the paper and lift up very carefully.  You will  have a tree trunk made from the arm and limbs made from the hand and fingers.

The children can now paint on leaves using green paint.

Next the children will use red paint to paint apples on their tree with their finger prints. 

The children can go another step if they want and use their green paint to put grass around the tree and the red paint to put apples on the ground that has fallen from the tree.
