Spring Blossom Tree Fingerpainting Craft

This is a wonderful Spring tree fingerpainting craft. It's one of a set of 4, one for each season. It uses one of my favorite techniques, using bubble wrap to paint the spring cherry blossoms.


  • white card stock or thick paper
  • paints
  • paint brushes
  • brown construction paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • bubble wrap
  • black marker

  • Directions:

    1. Beforehand, trace an cut out a simple tree shape. If you plan to make 4 of these crafts, make 4 trees with the same template. Or trace a hand print for the tree.
    2. Use brushes or fingers to paint on a blue sky and green grass. Use a little white to make the colors brighter and give the illusion of clouds. Allow to dry.
    3. Glue the tree into your spring scene.
    4. Cut a piece of bubble wrap, about the same size as the top of the tree.
    5. Paint the bubble wrap pink.
    6. Press onto the tree to make the cherry blossoms.
    7. Use thumb prints to make white lambs.
    8. After dry, use a marker to draw legs and eyes on your lambs.
