This is something Kaitlyn did last year as a two year old. This is a great activity for children in that age range because they can make a picture that they can recognize--it turns out similar to how they pictured it. It is also great for children of all ages because all children love to paint :)
- Paper plates
Cut a sponge into square or rectangle shapes. Set out some paint on paper plates.
Have your child draw a tree trunk in the middle of the paper.
Have your child dip the sponge in paint and put it on the paper around the "trunk" to make leaves.
