Season calendar gift

21 Dec

A quick and easy gift for children to make and give to grandparents is a calendar.

I wanted our calendar to be appropriate for the whole year so decided to represent each season with a tree. I cut out a simple tree shape which I used to draw around. Once we had 4 trees drawn on appropriate coloured paper The Limpet got to work finger printing.

For spring we did pink blossom; summer was green leaves; autumn red, brown and orange leaves. And we finished with snow for winter.

I added the calendar at the bottom and some coloured string to hang it up with. I think the grandparents will be very pleased.
