The Four Seasons
A Craft for Young Children
The seasons are slowly changing and it has been a blessing to feel some warmth once again. I love the fresh air smell of Spring. Spring makes everything alive and new again. I mean, honestly, is there anything better than hearing the birds sing in the morning? We are overjoyed in our house and of course we decided to bring it in with a cute simple craft!
This is a simple craft that uses paint, paper and hands. It is an excellent way to show young children how the seasons change throughout the year. We certainly had fun creating it, as well as, looking for our Spring trees out and about!
1. On the paper divide into 4 sections with the sharpie.
2. Next, using the brown paint, paint your child’s hand brown and stamp on paper. Repeat 4 times in each square. Add the trunk with a paintbrush. Then Dry.
3. After the handprints finish drying, using their fingers create your season trees.
4. Block 1 is winter. We used White paint.
5. Block 2 is Spring and we used pink paint to make it stand out!
6. Next, is Summer! Beautiful green everywhere.
7. Last but not least, Autumn. I used red, orange and yellow because you really can not have a fall tree with out the combination.
8. Finally, once it is all dry add the season titles on the squares.
This craft is a great way to teach about the seasons. I also pulled 4 different books, one centered on winter, fall, spring and summer. It was neat to see the differences in each book. The different colors used to show each season.
We are excited to have our winter decorations put away and getting ready for a season of bright flowers and fun days outdoors. How about you?
