This creative craft shows students the four seasons in the life of a tree—hands on!
This activity is appropriate for:
pre-k - 2nd grade / 4 - 7 years
You will need:
- Give students a sheet of white construction paper and have them draw four tree trunks side by side across the bottom of the page.
- Have students complete each of the four trees—one for each season—according to these instructions:
- Winter: Cut brown yarn into varying lengths and glue strands of yarn extending from the top of the trunk to create bare tree branches. Tear apart pieces of cotton balls to glue onto the branches to represent snow.
- Spring: Tear small pieces of light green tissue paper and glue them above the tree trunk so that they overlap to form the leaves of the tree. Add small pink tissue paper bunches to represent budding flower blossoms.
- Summer: Tear small pieces of light green tissue paper and glue them above the tree trunk so that they overlap to form the leaves of the tree. Add small red tissue paper balls to represent summer fruit or blossoms!
- Autumn: Tear small pieces of orange, red and yellow tissue paper and glue them above the tree trunk to make a fall-colored tree. Add a few scraps of fall-colored tissue paper on the ground next to the tree trunk to represent falling leaves!
