Seasons of a Tree Play Dough Activity & Printable

With the Fall Season right around the corner, we recently talked about the changing of the seasons and how the seasons affect the trees around us with my two littles.

A lovely book we read was, Tap the Magic Tree.

It is a wonderful interactive book exploring  the way a tree changes through the seasons.

To explore the seasons of a tree during National Play Dough Month, we enjoyed building the seasons of a tree, using play dough, on our printable activity mat.

Just download the printable below and you can explore the seasons with your child, too!

Talk about how the trees look in each season and use play dough to re-create the snow covered trees in winter, changing leaves in the fall, the buds in spring, and the leaves of green in summer.

We also added some sparkly sequins to use as our spring buds!

The kids loved this hands-on activity exploring the seasons.
