Trace your child's hand and forearm onto brown construction paper and cut it out. Glue the handprint onto white construction paper.
Cut a strip of green construction paper out that is about 1-2 inches wide. Cut small slits in the paper the entire way along one side to create "grass". Glue this piece down on the white paper covering the very bottom of the hand print.
Have your child dip a finger in one of the colors of paint and "dot" on some leaves over and around the handprint "trunk". Use a new finger for each color.
