Our theme last week was apples- a fun theme for this time of year. Our first activity was to learn about the different seasons of the apple tree. The activity was supposed to be based on “The Seasons of Arnold’s Apple Tree” by Gail Gibbons but we were all too sick to go to the library to get the book. But if you have that book this activity is perfect to go along with it.
Hailey is working on the spring tree in this picture. First she glued the tree onto the paper and then added green and white tissue paper to the tree.
Here are all of the seasons of the apple tree:
For winter just glue the tree onto the paper.
For spring, tear up white and green tissue paper and then wad it up to look like flowers and glue on.
For summer Hailey sponge painted the green on and then added some red pom poms for the apples.
For fall we ripped up yellow, orange and red construction paper and glued it on.
You can make your own little book out of these pages or just leave them as is.
