These fingerprint trees are a fun fall art project for the kids!

Fall Art

I thought it would be fun to do an art project that can bring the beautiful fall colors inside! These fingerprint fall trees are perfect for any age levels, especially if your kiddos like to get their hands (or fingers!) a little messy!

Here is how to make it –

Fall Art – Fingerprint Trees


  • pencil
  • white and brown construction paper
  • washable paint
  • paper plate or paint tray
  • scissors
  • glue


  1. Trace your child’s hand and arm onto the brown paper. Cut it out. This will be the tree trunk.
  2. Glue the tree trunk onto a piece of white construction paper.
  3. Pour a little paint onto a paper plate or paint tray.
  4. Dip finger into paint and dot onto paper to make leaves around the tree branches.
  5. Place in a safe place for drying.

I love that, depending on the age of the kiddos, they can make this project from start to finish independently or with a little help from an adult. And if your little one doesn’t like to get their hands messy, they can use a pencil eraser to make the project with similar results!

After the paint has dried, you can mount the project on colored construction paper for hanging. You can use this project for a way to talk about mixing the colors red and yellow to make orange or even discuss how leaves change colors in the fall! These would also look great hanging up in a school hallway! Happy Fall!
