Spring Tree Blossoms
An Activity for School-Age Children:
This activity helps children visualize and celebrate springtime changes in the world around them.


Before You Begin:
Gather materials needed: construction paper, colored tissue paper squares, craft glue, and brown and green paint, markers, or crayons. If you only have large sheets of tissue paper, you will want to cut them down to 2"-4" squares.


Activity Goals:
  • To discuss and understand the transformation trees make from winter to spring
  • To understand that different kinds of trees bloom and blossom in different ways


    Furthermore:
    Tear green leaves out of construction paper and glue them between the blossoms on the tree to fill out the branches.

    Step 1.
    Begin with a light-colored sheet of construction paper. On the paper, use the paint, markers, or crayons (whichever is available) to draw the trunk of a tree on a simple grass landscape. There should be no leaves in this drawing; explain that this is how trees look during the winter.
    Step 2.
    To apply blossoms to the trees, place the middle of a tissue paper square at the tip of a finger and fold the tissue around it, creating a sort of "cone."
    Step 3.
    Apply a small dab of glue to the tip of the tissue paper cone and place it on a branch of the tree. The tree is beginning to blossom.
    Step 4.
    Fill the tree branches with as many blossoms as desired. Now it is spring!
