Before making this Fall tree craft, we read books about the season like Why Do Leaves Change Color? and talk about why the leaves change colored and fall off the tree.

To begin making the craft, cut the brown construction paper into a variety of different size rectangles or strips.

To help children who haven’t developed their fine motor skills or hand muscle strength yet, provide your children with hand over hand support while cutting out the rectangles.

Next, glue the rectangles onto a pieces of blue construction paper to create a tree without any leaves.

While the glue dries, sort the Fruit Loops by color and place the red, yellow, and orange cereal pieces in a separate pile or small bowl.

Instead of using Fruit Loops, you can also use pomp poms, colored paper circles, or dot stickers.

Then, glue the Fruit Loops on the branches of the tree for the red, yellow, and orange leaves. Also, glue some cereal pieces on the bottom of the blue paper to make piles of leaves.

This Fall Colored Cereal Tree Craft is a fun and create way to learn about leaves changing colors and celebrate the beginning of Fall.
