birch trees...

These birch trees made by my fourth grade are so easy and look so great when finished. They simply drew the outline of three trees with a couple branches, making sure the trees were extended off the paper, painted the background as they wished, and used black tempera paint with a small piece of cardboard to give the trees their bark. Before the students gave the black marks on their trees they practiced on a piece of scrap paper first. The easiest way to create the marks of birch trees is to dip the cardboard into the paint, set it on the side of the tree and slide it in towards the middle of the tree. Enjoy!
