Montessori at home

Following on from our little exploration of leaves and seeds a few weeks ago I thought it would be fun to try and create some trees of our own. I wanted to talk about the way trees change during the seasons, and try and recreate them using different colours and materials. 

We mixed up some paint together, creating some different colours we might find in the seasons and used cotton buds (a pencil with a rubber would work well too!) to create the leaves, encouraging fine motor skills. We also tore up tissue paper to create blossom and painted apples. It was a fun little activity! 



(Sorry for the terrible quality photos, I only had my phone to hand!)

  9. Love these posts - I find them really inspirational, and although we all do crafts together, I would never have thought of making our own trees!
