Spring is one of our families favorite time of year. We love the many different changes you can see. The blossoms on the trees are some of our favorite changes.
It is so neat to see the different trees and blossoms as they bloom. We enjoy taking walks in the spring to see them. And since spring is here now we thought we would add a little spring to our house!
The spring washi tape tree is loads of fun with some fine motor worked into it.
Before we did this craft we read the book And Then It’s Spring. One of the things we love about this book is that you can’t always see the start of spring because it is happening underground. We love reading the book and then making our craft to go with it.
We also love doing changes of season activities. We did a washi tape fall tree and loved it. Now we have a washi tape spring tree!
I do love that this was a craft requested by my girls. I know that one of my girls always needs fine motor work to build up her handwriting endurance. I have found that fine motor crafts are one way to help that she does not complain.
Plus this activity and book suggestion came from her!
What you need for this activity:
- pink colors washi tape (We got a lot of ours at Michaels)
- green washi tape
- wood grain washi tape
The first step we always make is to build our trees. This is fun to do because you can see how big or small the tree might be. Plus everyone has their own idea of what their tree should look like.
After the trees are made we put some grass below our trees. Everyone had a different idea of how the grass area should look. It is one way I love doing crafts like this. It is open-ended and there is no right way to do it.
The final step was putting the blossoms on the trees. We all had different ideas of how it should work. And that is the way it should be. Would the tree be full of blossoms or only a few? I love how we all had fun while working on the craft.
