How To Make An Action Tree Of Colors For Kids

Creative Art Kids

Learn how to make an Action Tree full of bright colors for kids and inspire positive action with Elliot and myABCdad Learning for Kids.

An action tree of colors for kids is something I have long used in primary classrooms to help motivate positive action. Each year I would cut out a tree from a large piece of cardboard before painting it brown. After writing and presenting action leaves to students throughout the year, I would attach it to the tree. Every year, each action tree grew and grew. By the end of the school year, the action tree became a reflection of all the superb student action and positive choices. It also allowed parents and the wider school community to reflect. Some even contributed.

Now Elliot and I have planted our very own action tree of colors for kids  at home. With a large piece of cardboard, some colored paper, glue and scissors we worked together to create a really cool, colorful tree, fitting as we made it just before Christmas. We attached Elliot’s first action leaf to the tree and will continue to do so, helping acknowledge the great things he does inside and away from home.

Like in classrooms, over time, our action tree will also grow. As Elliot becomes a reader and writer, he too will be able to read and reflect on his own positive actions. I also anticipate him starting to write leaves acknowledging actions of others in our family.

Elliot already loves the action tree as he had a hand in make an action tree.
