I have been trying to come up with a few more ideas for Neevah that she can play with as she seems to enjoy playing with her creations more than just displaying them. Today we created an apple tree (but you could easily make it into other types of trees) for her to use when playing with her little people and animals.
You will need
Thin Card (cereal box or similar is perfect)
Toilet Paper Roll or similar
Red Tissue paper
1 .Cut out a tree shape (just the top part) from the thin card
2 .Paint the tree shape green3 .Let dry
4 .Cut or Rip the red tissue into strips and then scrunch into small apples
5 .Glue the apples onto the tree6 .Let Dry
7 .Cut 2 slits into the top of the toilet paper roll and slip the tree into the slots
For younger children I would recommend using red paint to make thumbprints for apples as Liam keeps trying to pull the apples off our tree.
Another great toilet paper roll tree can be found here
