Árbol de Halloween (Halloween Tree)

**Don't forget to link up to Toys my kids ACTUALLY play with tomorrow!

This last weekend I was lucky enough to spend some time with my favorite little girl in the world, my niece. As usual, Tia (as she calls me) had some fun activities planned. One afternoon while M was napping, we made Halloween trees. This activity gave the kids a lot of tracing practice. First, the kids traced my hand and forearm to make the tree. Then they traced a cup to make the moon and I traced their hands to make the ghost. After we cut them out and glued them to a piece of black paper, my niece wanted to add more so she made a pumpkin and I made an owl. She was very happy with the results. D's picture is last. He decided to make 2 moons, a scary faced ghost, and run away before I could take his picture. Boys and girls are SOOOO different.
