Building A Tree Leaf by Leaf

Saya petik ini dari Kinderart. Menarik?

Submitted by: Sandi Kovach-Long

This is a project which can be adapted for a wide range of ages and abilities including adults with physical, perceptual and cognitive challenges.

The beauty of this project is that everyone can participate.

There is no pressure to "stay within the lines" as the leaves are cut-out and those who can use scissors can cut-out the leaves for those who are unable to.

What You Do:

This is a large group project that can be accomplished by people with limited vision or motor skills.

I encouraged participants to start by making marks on the leaf outlines with marking pens and going back and coloring over these marks with crayons.

Staying in the lines is not necessary as leaves will be cut out.

The trunk is made from brown kraft paper (paper bags will work) and put on the wall with rolls of tape (make a loop sticky-side out & use as double-sided tape).

Cut-out the leafs and as a group decide where each one goes.

This tree can be HUGE. One of the trees we have created was about 10 feet tall! The one shown in the photographs is about 6 feet tall.
