Fall Tree made out of colored oats. A great sensory & arts and craft project for the kids for the fall autumn

I love the fall. It is my favorite season & there are so many reasons why, but the biggest of them all is the changing leaves. One of the advantages of living in New England is being able to take in the breathtaking autumn views. It is no surprise then that my favorite of all of the fall crafts is autumn trees.

Last night, with a little inspiration from my daughter, we made autumn trees crafts out of colored quick oats & also out of cauliflower. Here’s how.

Colored Oats Fall Tree

What you will need:

Quick Oats

Food Coloring in red, orange, yellow & brown

Black or brown magic marker

Glue

A piece of paper (thicker paper or card stock will work best.)

 

Directions:

To color your quick oats, put a handful of oats into a plastic baggie, add food coloring & shake. Spread the colored oats out onto a piece of wax paper & let dry. While the oats dry, draw a tree trunk & branches with a magic marker.

Continue to do this around your tree branches until you have achieved the tree that you like. Mai loved playing with the oats & did a great job on this craft.

We made one more quick tree craft before our evening was through.

Cauliflower Stamped Fall Tree Craft

Similar to the craft above, draw a tree trunk & branches. Squeeze out red, yellow & orange paint onto a paper plate. Dunk the raw cauliflower into the different colored paints.
