There are four seasons in preschool:fall

For each season, the children began by coloring their own tree with bare branches.

I enjoyed seeing each child’s interpretation of the bare tree. And as you can see, the canvas they used was a nice large piece of paper…

Each day the children created a new tree trunk with branches to prepare for a new season…

For the fall trees, the children glued on tissue paper leaves…

A terrific fall addition to their four seasons art wall!

    I love these trees! We did this with a butterfly but I didn’t think of using the same technique for leaves!

      It is amazing how the same techniques can be used for all kinds of themes!
