Tree of Hands

Summary: This craft can be altered to fit any theme depending what goes on the “leaves.”


  • Brown tree trunk shape (prepared by Imagineers)
  • Construction paper hand shapes (prepared by Imagineers)
  • Coloring supplies
  • Decorating supplies (sequins, stickers, glitter, etc.)
  • Glue, tape, or staples


  1. For younger students, use pre-cut hands. For older students, consider allowing them to trace and cut out their own hands.
  2. Have students decorate their hands. If you want, introduce a specific theme for how the hands should be decorated.
  3. Help students to attach their hands to the tree trunk.
