Giving Trees


29728374 29728392

A project inspired by Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, the hundreds of paper tubes in my cupboards and a desire to change out the display in the glass case in the lobby.

The preschoolers painted the tubes brown. Then they stamped green paint on with bubble wrap (something else I have lots of). Once that was finished, they used their fingers to dot on apples.


I assembled them once they were dry. I used glue to hold the top of the tree to the trunk and used a stapler to hold the tree tops together.
