The builder came home from preschool with a seasons craft.  They had glued gliter and colored construction paper on different sections of the tree to represent the 4 seasons.

Old Bear by Kevin Henkes is a wonderful book about the four seasons and a hibernating bear.  It is a book you can read and do projects with your kiddos all year long.  Activity suggestions…

  • collect nature samples throughout the year
  • record the positions of the stars

  • make a boat and let it go in a nearby stream/gutter
