October is coming to an end and the leaves are falling. It can only mean Fall is here and Football games too!! It’s time to transition your rooms so, why not have the children help with the decorations this year with these Festive Fall Football Trees!
Pick out the colors you would like the children to work with. (Suggetions on colors to use: red, orange, yellow, for those who would like to add more colors add purple, blue and pink )
For the leaves: cut ovals in all the colors you would like the tree leaves to be, repeating this step as needed to aquire the amount of leaves needed for a full tree. Using the brown construction paper, cut out all of the footballs in an oval shape as well.
(You can have the little ones cut out the leaves and footballs or have them precut and ready to go to make craft time a breeze.)
For the trunk of the tree: cut a rectangle with a wider trunk to give it the tree trunk look.
For the footballs: once the footballs have been cut out, use the silver shapie to add the lines of the threads on the football. (It’s best for the teachers to do this task due to it being a permanent marker and not a washable marker.)
Now that all the parts of the trees have been cut out and the footballs have been lined, use the glue or glue sticks to layer the leaves and footballs to the tree trunk creating a… Ready… set… hike…Football Tree.
Happy Football Fall Everyone!
