Make a Fall Tree Collage
A simple shape collage can be a great way to explore math concepts and learn about the artistic process. Encourage your child to build basic math skills such as shape recognition and the part-to-whole relationship. Take this opportunity to teach him some new vocabulary words such as geometric shape, primary color, texture, or collage for an added lesson.
Use rectangles, squares, and triangles to collage a tree trunk and branches. Next, attach tissue paper in fall colors full of seasonal inspiration. This activity will not only aid in math skill development, but will also encourage your child to investigate nature, the fall season, and gain knowledge about his environment.
What You Need:
- Construction paper (in browns)
- Tissue paper (in fall colors such as red, yellow, dark green, brown, and orange)
