First graders made their own paper for their winter trees using tissue paper and paper mache glue. They could use as many colors as they wanted (these are art winter trees after all;) They then painted a water color background using two colors. Once the papers were dry they cut three tall triangles on their handmade paper. They had to draw It just right to make sure all three triangles fit. They cut and glued the trees on the painted background. They added tree trunks using crinkly brown paper. Lastly, they added glitter gloss to the trees for some winter sparkle, and used paper hole punches to cut snowflakes from silver paper. They did a great job creating an artistic winter wonderland!
