Arbor Day Tree Painting for Kids
Are tree-planting activities the only way to celebrate Arbor Day? If you don’t have the space to start a sapling, check out the artsy way to mark this nature-fueled holiday.
Create a tall tree painting. Hang the painting after your kiddo crafts it or make an entire forest of tress to display at home for Arbor Day!
Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need
- Butcher paper, the side of a large cardboard box or plain gift wrap
- Tempera paint
- Markers or crayons
How-To Art-Making Steps
- Use the markers or crayons to draw a tree on the paper or board. If your child isn’t sure how to draw a tree, start with the trunk. Break the tree down into shapes, such as a long rectangle for the trunk and ovals for the leaves.
- Paint the tree. Your child can paint the trunk brown and the leaves green. They can add flowers or fruit to the top of the tree.
- Let the paint dry completely.
- Cut the tree out.
- Hang the tree up to display the painting.
- Optional: Use more paper or cardboard to create more trees. Your child can paint a forest of the same type of trees or a variety of different options.
