craft crisis averted

i just wanted to show you guys the lovely hand trees we made on wednesday. see, you trace your hand and wrist on a piece of paper and color it brown. that will be the trunk and branches of your tree. then you cut out a bunch of leaves and glue them to said tree.
1. it's so easy
2. it doesn't involve any obscure materials
3. the kids love it
i got the idea here. the leaf template they provide is very useful, however i had to enlarge it because the leaves were kinda small and annoying to cut out, especially if you're using safety scissors.

I suggest that at your next party, you make us do crafts like this!
