Four Seasons Spinning Plate
A great craft to teach your little ones all about the four seasons!
What you’ll need:
2 paper plates
Light blue paint
Use the pencil (and ruler) to draw vertical and horizontal lines on both plates creating 4 equal parts on each
Poke a hole through the center of both plates
Cut out 1 of the 4 sections of one of the plates, being sure to leave the hole in tact
Paint both plates in light blue and let dry
Starting in the middle, draw branches all around the full plate (on all 4 parts) extending all the way to the end. Decorate each section to represent a season (see tips below)
Place the plate with the missing section on top of the full plate and draw a tree trunk (being sure to reach all the way up – see photo)
Insert split pin through both plates and secure
Call out a season and let your little one spin the plate to find the right one!
Each section represents a tree. Paint each tree to represent each of the 4 seasons.
o Winter – bare branches with white snow in the background
o Spring – pink blossoms on the branches
o Summer – green leaves on the branches with sun in the background
o Autumn – red/brown/yellow leaves on the branches
