Learning the seasons


  • Printout of the prepared material (the trees - 4 seasons)
  • Temperas for children in shades of white, pink, green, yellow, brown and red
  • or alternatively markers
  • Cotton swabs (will not be needed if you use markers)


Learning the seasons helps children understand the passage of time and teaches them about change. While some seasonal changes are more obvious (like changes in the weather), there are many important subtle differences related to each season, like changes in the tree leaves.

Spring. During spring, trees start growing again and sprout new leaves and flowers.

Summer. Trees keep growing during summer. Most plants produce green leaves in summer.

Fall. Trees stop growing during the fall. Their leaves fall or change their color to brown, yellow or red.

Winter. Winter is the coldest season. Many trees don't have leaves.

We have prepared for you this workshop with ready-made trees. Use liquid paints and cotton swabs (or markers) to create the leaves in the different colors that characterize the 4 seasons of the year!
