All Season Tree Crafts for Kids

TREES are depiction of seasons. Spring would have green lush leaves swinging on the trees, which began to turn yellow and fall in the autumn season. Winter is marked by the Christmas Tree all over the world.

So to teach kids about different seasons, trees are the best crafts to make with them. For the trees crafts, I have predominantly used bubble wrap, straw and q-tips. Use of these materials also has more benefits than just another craft activity:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Cognitive skills
  • Sensory skills
  • Strengthening of hand muscles
  • Creativity

These easy crafts are perfectly for Montessori curriculum or just following some absolutely practical Montessori teaching techniques at home.
The best thing is you don’t need too many materials to create a tree craft or any kind of special artistic skills or prior preparation. Any person with even lesser to zero craft skills can also do this craft.

Painting with Bubble Wrap

Age: 3+


  • White paper
  • Paint – green, yellow, red, orange, brown
  • Bubble Wrap
  • Brush


Tree Craft

Step 1: Draw a tree trunk and branches with brown color on white paper – use sketch colors or water colors

Step 2: Take green color on a plate and cut small pieces of bubble wrap

Step 3: Dip the bubble wrap in green color dab on the paper

Step 4: Now take yellow color near the green on the plate and mix little yellow with green. So now we have three shades – green, light green and yellow.

Step 5: Dab some leaves on ground too

There are 2 techniques which can be used with bubble wrap:
