This Craft is based on the children’s book, “The Berenstain Bears and The Spooky Old Tree”, by Stan and Jan Berenstain. Kids love this book and it is one of my favorites too! Read this book and create this spooky tree craft to go along with it. You could also give kids the freedom to create their own picture to go with the story, let them create a scene of their favorite part of the book and use this craft as inspiration!
Start by tracing your hand on a piece of brown construction paper while elongating the fingers. To do this, trace from the wrist up past the fingers and come to a point. You may have to help younger kids with this step and it helps if you demonstrate first.
Next, snip a thin strip of green construction paper to make the grass. Cut out and tuck a jack-o-lantern into the grass. Cut out a bat, some crows, and a big yellow moon. Glue the cutouts onto a gray or black piece of construction paper to complete your spooky scene!
