Here are the Paint Chip Tree, Flowers and Earth that Putti made.

After seeing the beautiful paint chip collages at The chocolate muffin tree, I was inspired to pull out my collection of paintchips for putti to play. Putti loved sorting them into color groups - greens, yellows, reds etc. And then, putti cut all the greens into pieces as she wanted to make a Tree.

Then she glued them all onto a cereal box cardboard in the shape of a tree. And thanks for the tip(at chocolate muffin tree) to hold the pieces down and count to ten as the paint chips curl when u apply glue. It was fun counting. Putti counted in english, kannada and spanish too yay!!                Earth day kids crafts
Punched a hole and tied some thread and hung it.

  Putti loved this activity so much, that she went on with it and made some flowers too.

 And with all these recycling craft work, I asked her if she would love to make an earth for the earth day. She loved the idea and went ahead to make it.
