Fall Tree Craft for Kids

Sharing is caring!

This paper fall tree craft is a very easy craft that requires no prep work and it’s among our favorite fall crafts for kids. It is perfect for those upcoming rainy days when you’re stuck inside.

It will help little ones not only practice their scissors cutting skills but also learn about shapes and sizes.

The tree is basically a sandwich of paper circles of different colors.

My 4 and 5 year olds loved that they each could add their own creative spin to the craft by cutting the edges of the circles in different patterns.

Paper fall tree shapes

Step 1: Cut four circles out of the green, yellow, orange and red card stock paper sheets. Make sure they are of different sizes.

We used a circle hole punch for the smallest circle and some bowls and plates for the larger shapes.

Step 2: Cut out the edges of the circles.  You can use the same pattern for all circles or try a different one for each of them.

(Alternative) Use decorative edge craft scissors to cut out the circles.

Step 3: Cut the trunk from brown cardstock paper and glue it at the bottom of the light blue paper sheet.
