Ok! I am slightly obsessed with fall trees, but why wouldn’t I be? They are beautiful and so fun to make.

As you may know, we love working with yarn and I had an idea for a fall tree craft using yarn. I drew a swirly branched tree onto a piece of construction paper and cut a bunch of small pieces of yarn and coiled them with my fingers to glue around the branches. I thought that this would be a great fine motor activity as well as a pretty craft for my daughter.
I showed my 4 year old what I was doing. She said “The tree is kind of spooky, but I like it.” She grabbed a piece of yarn and tried to make coils too. She tried a few different ways, but was having difficulty working with the yarn. It was a bit too floppy for her little fingers to work with.
We decided to try a pipe cleaner to see if that would be easier for her to work with and it was.
She wanted to draw her own tree, but asked for just a little help with her trunk. She drew in her swirly branches with a Sharpie.
We cut some pipe cleaners in half and then she coiled some more.
My daughter is big on forming patterns, so she laid out her coils to form a pattern. We scattered sequins around both of our projects for a lovely accent to our trees.
