Winter Tree Finger Painting - two styles of snowy treeWhen I look outside after a snowstorm, I feel like the world is anew. The beauty and the stillness take my breath away. I want it to stay that way forever. But eventually, the snow begins to melt and the world returns to normal. This is one reason I enjoy artwork that captures nature. This painting is simple, fun, and elegant. It is perfect for children or adults because it is easy, but could also turn into a nice piece of artwork if framed or painted on a canvas.


Total Time: 30 minutes to make and about two hours to dry

Yield: 2 trees

Source: Pinterest


  • 1 sheet of light blue construction paper
  • scissors
  • paint (white, brown, red, orange)
  • 4 small paint brushes
  • 1 brown colored pencil
  • 1 brown crayon
  • 1 brown thin marker
  • 1 black fine tip pen

  1. Cut the blue paper in half for two tree scenes. Use a paint brush and brown paint to form a bare tree outline on one half sheet. Paint in the trunk. On the other, use a colored pencil for the outline. Color in the trunk with a crayon and trace the outline with a marker.
  2. Winter Tree Finger Painting - paint in outline of trunk and branches and then fill in trunk

  3. After the painted tree outline is dry, add white paint with your index finger to create snow on the ground and in the tree. For the colored tree, I used a paint brush to add paint to the tree limbs. I added the ground snow with my index finger. Allow to dry.

  5. You can also add small details to each tree. I placed a cardinal in the painted tree and a squirrel and bear prints in the other.
