A Fun Spring Craft: Model Magic Spring Tree

I think spring has to be one of my favorite times of the year. I love all the changes from winter to spring. You go from bare trees to trees full of blossoms to trees filled with leaves.

We have don’t several spring trees over the years. And After we did the model magic apple tree. I knew I wanted to do a spring tree as well.

So today we have the Model Magic Spring Tree!

What you need for the Model Magic Spring Tree

How to make your Model Magic Spring Tree

I always start off by taking an extra paper roll and making a circle in the foam ball. This allows us to know where to stop with the model magic. Plus it makes it easier to put the paper roll when we are done with the model magic. You use the extra roll just in case while you are making the circle it does not get ruined.

It does make a mess doing this so make sure you have something underneath the ball.

We start off with painting the paper roll brown. This changes the color and gives some texture to the trunk of the tree. You can also then put them aside to dry while you work on the rest of the model magic spring tree. It may take a while to dry if you put loads of paint on it.

And if you want you can skip this step and just use the paper roll as it is.

Next, we put the pink model magic on the foam ball. This is a great fine motor activity. You are pushing and pressing with fingers to move the pink model magic onto the foam ball.

After we had the tree all cover, we put some green leaves on the tree. They got to pick the size and shape of the leaves. I love leaving this part up to what they want to do.
