Our first craft was to recreate George Washington in his military attire.




   Then, we made an cherry tree out of a paper bag.  (Yes we used apple stickers, but we pretended that they were cherries!!)  Cut the bag to about 6 inches down into 3/4 inch strips.  Twist the middle after putting a couple pieces of wadded up scrap paper in the bottom to hold it down.  Then you twist 2-3 together  all the way to the ends.  I had some apple stickers, so he put them on his tree.  You could just as easy use construction paper and glue them on if you desire.
