The Plan (Template Version):

Get your children to colour in the template bats and leaves in various colours and using various mediums (paint, pens, pencils, crayons etc.)
Cut out the bats and leaves – assist the children as required with this part
Get them to colour in the template tree trunk, cut out and stick on black backing paper
Glue the leaves onto the tree
Glue the bats onto the tree/surrounding area
Use crayons/pencils etc. to further decorate the page (spiders, ghosts, tombstones etc.

The Plan (Tissue Paper Version):

Cut black and orange tissue paper in 1.5inch squares

Instead of using the tree template children can use their hand to create to create their own tree outline!
