Victoria Ruby Azevedo gave me this idea through our Facebook Fan Club page and I tried it out with Ethan. This is our outcome 🙂

Toilet Paper Roll Tree

Paint the toilet paper roll brown

Let it dry

Cut a tree top out of a green foam

Use a single hole punch, punch out red little 'apples' 😀

Glue the 'apples' onto the tree top

Cut a slit on both opposite sides

Insert the tree top and your toilet paper roll tree is done 🙂

Thank you Victoria for the great idea 😀

At the playground today, Ethan kept on observing the trees and the falling leaves. He has seen those trees and the leaves everyday for so many months now but wonder why today he was more intrigue by them. So when we got back home, I decided to do this craft with him.
By now this boy is an expert in tracing the outline of his palm. I helped him cut out the ‘hands’ as he is too young to use the scissors.
I let him do his own pasting. One thing about craft for kids is, the more imperfect it is, the better I like it!
He is so proud of all his crafts, he kept on telling Daddy, “Ethan make tree” and also “Ethan make SUN” referring to his previous Sun craft! 🙂
