Little ones will build motor skills while they learn about the changing seasons.
What You Need:
•White construction paper
•A brown crayon
•A tray of water colors (or finger paints)
•Dish of water
What You Do:
- Encourage little ones to draw the trunk and branches of a tree.
- Have them look at real trees - either by going outside, or by looking out the window.
- Then have them dip their index finger into the water and rub it onto a water color tablet.
- Using an up and down printing motion, the student makes finger prints of over the tree the tree branches.
- This is great for a season by season lesson on how trees change throughout the season.
- Use green for summer, reds/yellows/oranges for fall, white for winter and lime green for spring with perhaps cherry or apples blossoms using a little finger print.
