This month for the Poppins Book Nook, the theme is Forest. We have a book that we love to read called The Busy Tree by Jennifer Ward. I thought this would fit in perfectly with today’s post! To accompany this book, we created a Four Seasons Tree Craft to share with you.
This cute book book shares all the different things that happen on and around a tree: bird nests, bugs, woodpeckers, kids playing, cocoons, worms in the roots, etc. I love how it is a fun story to read to my little ones, but it is also teaching them something as we read it together. The illustrations, by Lisa Falkenstern are beautifully done and look almost lifelike.
Now for our Four Seasons Tree Craft.
To make this craft you will need 4 colored pieces of paper a toilet paper roll, glue and things to decorate it with. We used stickers, but you could just as easily color pictures!
I drew a tree shape with a short trunk on the top paper. Cut all of them out at once so they were the same shape and size. Fold them all in half. and match up the sides together so you have all four of them connected. Glue them together. We used glue sticks.
When all of them are glued together, you will need to make little slits to be able to insert them into the toilet paper roll. You can secure the top of the tree with a little tape inside the t.p. roll. If you are going to decorate, you may want to do this before securing the trunk to the tree.
Let your little ones decorate each side according to the season! This part is the most fun!
