    Supplies Needed


    1. Mix glue and sand together in a small bowl to get a thick consistency. If the mixture gets too gloppy, add water.
    2. Paint the glue and sand mixture onto a sheet of construction paper to form a tree. Start at the bottom of the sheet and work your way up to form the trunk of the tree. Branch off near the top to create tree limbs. Let the glue dry completely.
    3. Use Paint and 3D Washable Paint Pens™ to create leaves, apples, flowers, grass, ect. Let the paint dry completely.
    4. Touch your tree—it will feel like real bark!
