For this art activity we used patterned paper – you could use plain paper or a mix of patterned and plain – but I thought it was a great opportunity to use up some paper scraps. We also used two circle paper punches – this 1/2″ punch and one similar to this 1″ punch. I found some bare tree images from Clker and printed them onto white card.

F found both paper punches quite hard to operate. But he kept trying, and did have a few successes. In the end I had to help and cut some circles for him.Circle Punch Art - a pretty art technique for kids to try!

 

I don’t often use glue sticks but they were perfect for this activity. F spread the glue all over the tree.Circle Punch Art - a pretty art technique for kids to try!
