My daughter has recently decided that she is now a rock collector. She loves to bend down and pick up rocks wherever she sees them. Lucky for her, our driveway is filled & lined in rocks. Yesterday, she sat in the driveway & carefully picked a bunch to bring indoors and add to our growing pile.
We, of course, had to find something fun to make with all of our rocks. Since my favorite season is nearing and my favorite thing to make is fall trees, I thought we could try making trees out of our rocks.
For the trunks, we looked for long narrow rocks. We used two to form the trunk. We painted both of them in brown.
We used small to medium-sized rocks to represent leaves & painted each by dotting fall colors all around to look like a cluster of leaves. We also painted small pebbles in solid fall colors for the falling & loose leaves.
We snapped off a few branches and brought them in too. I figured we could try different configurations of fall trees & the sticks might add a little extra something to our designs.
This could be a great idea on a larger scale for a group of children as well.
