Toddler Activity: Wine Cork Tree

I love being a mom and I also love wine!  So when Pinterest bought me a craft that kind of combined the two, I was all about it.  This project looked simple enough and really pretty in the picture but with a 2 year old, I knew that I wasn't going to make a perfect tree with perfect wine cork leaves.  The goal was to have fun and that we did!

Here is what you need:

  • White paper
  • Brown crayon
  • Paint (I just used red, yellow and mixed them to make an orange)
  • 3 wine corks

It is super easy to make about 3 steps!

1. Draw the tree.  I did it myself but if your child is older, they could do it.

2. Set out 3 colors with separate wine corks for dipping

3. Dip cork in paint and make a print on the tree to make the leaves.  Repeat until it is as full as you want!

4. Let dry and enjoy!  Sure, it isn't perfect but it was a different and fun activity...and it gave me a reason to drink wine.  It was for the art project!
