With just a bit of help from her big sister Emily, Clara was able to enjoy some crafting fun with this blossoming cherry tree craft! To make your own, you will need brown, white, and green paper (we recycled some leftover scrap paper), pink tissue paper (again, recycled from a gift bag), and some glue.
Blossoming Cherry Tree
April 5, 2010 by
I cut a tree trunk shape from the brown paper, and helped Emily tear a strip of green paper for the grass. Then, Emily began by gluing the grass and tree trunk to the white background paper. Clara was very excited to see the glue!
Next, Emily took her job as “big sister” quite seriously, and put little dots of glue where the blossoms will go.
She showed Clara how to attach the blossoms (scrunched up bits of pink tissue paper). Clara said, “Oh! Wow!!”…. and then…..
… Clara added LOTS of blossoms to the cherry tree! It was a cherry blossom explosion!
Allow the glue to dry completely and admire your beautiful cherry tree!
Added bonus — This is one cherry tree that won’t make me sneeze!
