Season Tree Project

The changing of the seasons is a great activity theme for a classroom, group or home educating session. This project uses an array of creative essentials to make up a folded book that gives children a tree-shaped page for each season. They can decorate the pages to highlight the characteristics of each particular season, showing how the landscape changes for each one by using stickers, pens, pencils and gems.
