 I covered the table with newspaper and poured paints into little cups. Then Putti first painted a simple tree silhouette with a stem and a couple of branches. If your child is too young to paint, you could do it for him, or use his arm and palm for the tree or use a printout.

Next she dipped the scrubber in green paint and “stamped” leaves all around her branches. If you have the scrubbers that some with little handles it would be great for kids who don't like to get paint on their hands.

 The prints that the scrubber makes are really cool.

Go on stamping as much as you like. Here is how the tree looked when my girl stopped stamping.

I suggest waiting for the green to dry before moving onto next step to avoid color mixing. Then she went on dipping a wine cork into red paint and adding “apples” on her trees.

These turned out beautiful, Roopa! Love the textured effect due to the scrubber, and the cork is perfect for apple impressions. Infact, stamping with the cork would be a sensory feeling in itself due to its own softness...
Pinning it....

Great idea! I love the textured look that the scrubber makes.This will be perfect for my daughter. We don't do a lot of painting because she hates getting paint on her hands. I think she'll love this.

My son and I used some of your techniques here to create his own, more abstract version of an apple tree. Thanks for the inspiration!

Here it is if you're interested:

Such an effective idea. I have pinned it to our board.

Thanks for linking to the Sunday showcase.
