Seasons- Torn Paper Art & Language Skills Builder

This is a craft you can do even with little little kids, since all they need to do is rip some paper up! We used cotton for snow, just because cotton is fun.

Tear strips of brown paper for the trunk and branches (or let them draw the tree), and then tear up the leaves (if you little one is having a hard time, start the tears for them) and glue them on.

Go Further:

This can be an excellent language activity:

-Help your child to come up with adjectives that describe each season

– Talk with your kid about how each season looks, sounds, feels, smells, and even tastes (winter tastes like Christmas cookies!)

-Talk with your child about the different things that happen in each season- holidays, birthdays, vacations, snow, rain, etc…

Texture Hunt

Take your kiddo for a walk, a hike, or just out into the backyard, and have them hunt for different textures. Use adjectives to describe how each object feels.

Go Further:

-Have your kid draw pictures of the objects and help them write the adjectives next to the pictures

Take pictures of the objects and make a book, with one picture & adjective per page (you can do this either by gluing the pics onto paper and making a book, or you can go as far as making a book through Walgreens, Snapfish, etc…)

-Do crayon rubs with the objects (place a piece of paper over the object and rub a crayon over the paper). This will work great with some objects, and not so well with others.
