Hand Trees!

Grace's hand trees
Jack's hand trees
Grace and Jack made these beautiful four season trees this morning by painting their hands and forearms using brown paint. Their forearms represents tree trunks and their hands represents branches. Once the trees dried Grace and Jack painted their fingers to make leaves -- green leaves on their summer trees, yellow, red, orange, and brown leaves on their autumn trees, and pink and white paint for the blossoms on their spring trees!
