Fall Tree Pipe Cleaner Sculpture Art Activity


There’s a chill in the air, the leaves are changing colors and it’s finally sweater weather! Its fall and I’m ready to make some autumn art. As the trees change from glossy green to brilliant yellows, oranges and reds, take the kids outside for some science time and then create a fall sculpture.

Fall trees
 

Before you start the art-making process, take a nature walk! As your child takes a look around, ask her:

·        What colors can you find in the trees?

·        Can you tell me what color the leaves used to be in the summer?

·        Why do you think the leaves are changing colors?

Collect a few leaves to take inside for inspiration or set up shop outdoors and let your little artist sculpt sitting in the grass or at a picnic table.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Brown pipe cleaners

·        Green, red and yellow modeling clay

·        A piece of card stock paper or cardboard

·        Red, yellow and orange tissue paper

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Fold two or three pipe cleaners in half.

 
2.     Wrap the pipe cleaners around each other. Your child can create a trunk and branches.

Kids' crafts
 
3.     Create a grassy base for the sculpture. Have your child roll a piece of green clay into a ball. She can smoosh it down onto the paper or board, creating a mound. Press the clay into the paper, smoothing it out around the edges to make it stick. Push the pipe cleaner trunk into the clay.

 4.     Pull apart dime-sized pieces of red and yellow clay. Press and blend the clay   
           onto the green mound, creating autumn leaves.

6.     Tear pieces of tissue paper. Wrap the pipe cleaner branches around the tissue paper to make leaves.
