Welcome to the magical world of the seasons art & craft! Each season has a special appearance, charm and poetry, from the warm colours of autumn at the whiteness of winter, green of spring and yellow of summer. Children are the first and most receptive to the musicality and beauty of nature, observe the changes that occur in nature under the influence of environmental factors, ask questions, investigate and discover everything around them. Let’s celebrate each season through festivals of colour, creativity and art. Its purpose is the promotion and stimulation of creative and artistic potential of the pupils in primary, promoting the teachers experience from all the project partner schools. This guide gives to you great ideas to do with students in your classroom. These art & craft activities cover a wide range of subjects for each season to be easier to find and choose what you need at the time. You will find ideas for working with materials from nature, paper and textile, wool yarn or wire, work projects carried out by groups or individual, colouring drawings etc. Art activities are a terrific way for kids of all ages to express themselves creatively. We have loads of art ideas for kids that are easy to do. Whether you like painting, drawing, stamping, or making cards or collages, you’ll find the perfect art project right here.

The 4 Seasons Crafts These four season's artwork are gorgeous and a really wonderful activity to do with the kids:

We started with four trees on a page; each tree gets something glued to it: spring- popcorn summer- tear bits of green construction paper, hole punch red paper for apples fall- tiny brown leaves (I used honey locust) or torn brown paper bag winter- drizzle school glue all over tree and across the base, the child uses a finger to spread it smooth; sprinkle with table salt.

3D four seasons craft – a group project using cardboard, polyestercut figurines, colored paper, small balls of polyester, fabrics.

Four Seasons Craft – group project

Supplies You Will Need: Four brown paper lunch sacks White and green cardstock or construction paper Tissue paper (green, pink, blue, brown, black, yellow, red, orange) Cotton balls Scissors Glue

Making The Trees Cut multiple strips into top half of bag about one half inch thick. Stand bag up, and open it. Twist base of bag up into a trunk like shape. Twist remaining strips at top, two at a time, into branches.

Glue tree to center of green/white paper. To make leaves take pinches of green, red, orange, and yellow tissue paper and slightly crunch them up (for spring, summer, autumn). Add leaves to the ground beneath the tree (autumn). Follow the picture tutorial below to make a pumpkin. Glue these sparingly to the tree branches, spreading them out as you go. To make the flowers take pinches of pink tissue paper and slightly crunch them up. Glue these sparingly to the tree branches, spreading them out as you go. Add blue tissue paper to the paper to appear as puddles. To make grass, take green tissue paper roughly torn and cut long strips to look like grass. Fold bottom half of green over and glue to paper in order to keep it standing. Break cotton balls apart (winter) Glue cotton ball piece all over paper. Stuff little pieces of cotton into branches to look like snow. Make a snowman.
