Seasonal Tree-3D Bulletin Board

 I change the tree seasonally.  I feel children should be able to know what is going on in their world during the seasons and what it means for us. The trunk is made of crumpled up brown paper.  It came in the large rolls.  The branches are held up on the ceiling with fishing line and the ceiling hooks you can buy at any school supply store.   The children do the decorating in multi-media techniques.

For the fall leaf, I cut out the leaves on the Cricut.  I then had the children sponge paint the fall colors on the leaves.
For the winter, the students will decorate snowflakes with glitter.

For the Spring, the students will decorate little flower blossoms with the pinched tissue paper dipped in glue technique.

For the Summer leaves, they will do some sort of printing on a green leaf, possibly printing with real leaves on the leaf for a textured, vein look.  I will post the other season pictures as the seasons come.
