This is the last day in the Camp Craft Series. Be sure to check out all of the crafts in the series
Sharon, the camp director wanted to have A Good Deed Tree. She wanted something similar to THIS but more earthy. I was able to help her out and created this tree for her. It was so simple it took less than 15 minutes to do.
- Empty burlap rice bag
- Empty #10 can
- Tree Branches
- Pruning shears
- Paper leafs (I cut mine out using my Cricut)
- Baby clothespins
Step 1: Gather branches. Trim off excess leaves or smaller branches with pruning shears.
Step 2: Cut off the top of burlap rice bag (save the zipper for another project!) and turn inside out.
Step 3: Slide empty can into bag.
Step 4: Place branches into can and arrage until it looks best to you.
Step 5: Fill in empty gaps with rocks, gravel, dirt, etc.
Step 6: Wrap ribbon tightly around tree and burlap. This will also help keep it secure.
Step 7: Have the leafs and clothespins available for the girls to write the good deeds that they see others do.
|Do you see the rocks?? They fill in the gaps and add weight to the can.|
The girls were able to notice the good things that others did and were also able to give eachother credit for those good things. Win - win!
