Blossoming Tree Craft

We enjoyed reading My First Chinese New Year several times while Simon was learning about the holiday at school. (Don't even get me started about what a fabulous job his school did - they even had the head of Asian Studies from the largest university in the state come in and give a preschool appropriate talk on Chinese culture. I love Simon's school!) Simon liked the part in the story where the family buys blossoming branches to decorate the house. We made our own fingerprint blossoming tree inspired by Crafty-Crafted.

I drew the "tree" first with brown crayon. Simon dipped his finger in red paint to make some of the blossoms, and then dipped my finger in paint to made the rest.
