Paper woodland scenes

As some trees begin to lose their leaves you can see the shape of their branches clearly. Look at the shapes carefully as you are out in the garden or on a walk to help you make this picture.

Making a woodland scene

What you'll need

  • Two sheets of dark blue sugar paper

  • Scissors

  • Glue

What to do

  1. Cut tree branches and tree shapes from black paper.

  2. Cut out night time animal shapes from black paper; this could be a bat, owl, hedgehog, or the silhouette of a spiders web. 

  3. Cut some tree shapes from the blue paper too.

  4. Spread out the black and blue shapes on a sheet of dark blue paper and overlap them so that it looks like the animals and trees are in the forest.
