Sand crafts have very big "again!" appeal at our house. This fall tree craft was thought of by our daughter who didn't want to stop playing with the fall colored sand. After we made the craft we realized it was definitely one to share - it was a beautiful fall tree! This craft is easy enough for a toddler to do and enjoyable enough for an older child.

What you'll need:

  • Colored sand (available at craft stores)
  • Glue
  • Construction paper
  • Brown crayon
How to make your Sand Fall Tree Craft:
  1. Draw a tree trunk on a piece of construction paper and color it in with the crayon.
  2. "Draw" the top of the tree using glue. Fill it in with glue and use your finger to spread the glue around in an even layer.
  3. Sprinkle red, yellow and orange sand on the glue. Completely cover the tree. Dump off any excess sand.
