Apple Carton Trees

I wish I would of thought of this years ago, because they turned out beautifully.  We cut apple cartons in the shape of a tree and let the children paint to their hearts content.  Once they had painted their tree shape we had them sprinkle glitter on top of the wet paint.  These beautiful trees are now hanging around our classroom and bringing us some holiday cheer.

Bring in Some Holiday Cheer!
