    5. Place in the container and pack newspaper all around the sides. Secure the tree with masking tape to hold in a straight vertical position. Then criss cross the masking tape several more times for sturdiness. See Photo.

    6. easter tree leaves

    7. Make leaves by cutting strips of tissue 1 1/2 inches wide. Then cut into squares. These pieces of tissue do not have to be exact, you can estimate the size of a square.
    8. Fold the tissue so all corners are together then, pinch and roll the bottom between finger and thumb to form a point. This technique is more for adults. Your toddler may participate in this part of the tree and help make the leaves also. With a square of tissue, wad it up in a ball and it will look like a bud or small flower. It will have a beautiful feel of Spring. See Photo
