Materials and tools

  • One or more toilet paper rolls. For each tree you need one paper roll. 
  • Colored papers: Brown for the trunk and the branches and green for the leaves.
  • Pencil.
  • Glue suitable for kids.
  • Scissors.
  • Brush.
  • Watercolor.


1. Use a large brush and watercolor paint to paint the paper roll brown. Make sure you protect your working surface with old newspaper sheets or with a plastic membrane.

2. Let the paint dry for a few minutes.

3. At the top edge of the paper roll make four slits (around 2 cm long). Inside these slits, you will slide the branches.
