For Chinese New Year, create this simple money tree, which can bring money and fortune and symbolises affluence, nobility and auspiciousness.
- Red cardboard or red paper
- Gold paint
- Paintbrush or sponge
- A coin
What to do:
Trace the child's hand and forearm onto the red piece of paper.
Using a paintbrush or sponge, dab gold paint inside the hand to create the tree branch.
Add gold paint to a coin and stamp it around the hand to create the "money tree".
Now, you have created you're very own money tree!
Hints and Tips:
- Use gold paper instead of paint to collage inside the hand
- Instead of stamping coins, gold circles can be cut out and glued around the tree
- Add glitter for a sparkly effect
