Supplies needed for this playdough activity:


Directions to make this fall craft for kids:

Take a nature walk with your kids. Invite them to pick a handful of leaves.

Mix orange, blue and yellow play doh together to form the grayish doh for your tree trunk.

Tear the gray doh into two sections, with being larger than the other.

Roll the biggest section into the shape of a tree trunk.

Begin tearing off bits of the remaining doh.

Form several branches and attach them to the tree trunk.

As you can see, I did two bigger branches, with 2 forked sections on each limb.

Invite your child to attach the leaves they gathered to the branches of the tree.
