In 1912, Washington DC, received a spectacular gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees from Tokyo, Japan. 100 years later, people from all over the world are still enjoying the benefits of this wonderful gift. Talk about the gift that keeps giving! We are going to make our own cherry blossom branch craft using pink, red, and white squares of tissue paper and ‘scrunching’ and gluing them onto an empty branch in honor of one of our nation’s most beloved treasures.
Let’s celebrate Cherry Blossom season!
- Pink, red, white tissue paper
- Print the Kraftykid tree branch template.
- Tear the pink, red, white tissue paper into small squares about 1 ½ inch square.
- Scrunch the paper together to form a small ball.
- Glue to the empty branch.
