This month, we are focusing on our squares, circles, and triangles so we are going to use these shapes to make some fall inspired trees.
This is a fun craft that will help your Lil’ work on sorting and shapes at the same time.

#### *Glue

##### Step #1
Print out our Fall Shape Tree template.
##### Step #2
Cut tissue paper into square, circle, and triangle pieces.
I cut my tissue paper in half multiple times to get about 20 small pieces of paper. Then, I cut the shapes out of multiple pieces at a time.
##### Step #3
Lay out the three shaped trees as well as the tissue paper leaves (shapes).
##### Step #4

Glue the tissue paper leaves onto the correct shape tree.
