Step 2: Trim

Trim the edges of the A5 paper with your scissors, as a parent/guardian for help if necessary. You could even use crazy zig-zag scissors to make them extra awesome!

Step 3: Draw on your tree!

Draw on your tree, use the brown for the tree and a pencil to draw a rough outline of the heart as a guide for the messy bits!

Step 4: The messy and fun bit!

For this stage, you may want to wear an apron! Now is time to get your fingers in the paint and fill in the tree shape with fingerprints for leaves!


Step 5: Redo the tree

Once the paint is dry go over the tree shape with the brown pen so its shape is bright and beautiful!
