Did you know art plays an important role in brain development and boosting confidence in kids?

Cardstock or Construction Paper (White)
Oil Pastel


Step 1: Prepare the workspace by attaching the paper to the table using masking tape. This is an optional step just to make sure paper doesn't move while kids are working on their artwork.

Step 2: Start by painting the background for a season using oil pastel colors. Spread the color with a tissue paper to give an even look.

Step 3: Trace kid's handprint to make the tree stem.

Step 4: Fill the tree using a brown crayon.

Step5: Cut a rectangular piece of sponge. Dip the sponge in color based on the season.

Step 6: Based on the season, start printing the leaves and flowers using the sponge.

Let the paint dry and your beautiful spring tree is ready! Repeat the steps to make tress for other seasons.
