Cherry Blossom Tree

Spring is here and with it comes some really fun projects, gardening, science fun and more! This week we enjoyed some great books on Spring, poetry on spring, various art projects, garden exploration, garden planning, outdoor time, car hunts for cherry blossom trees, a movie on seasons and a movie on weather and changes in spring. A fun week for sure!

A favorite project Holly enjoyed is her Cherry Blossom Tree art project she created at home. We have done a few variations of this however this particular art project was her favorite one... mine too (I think because she slowed down and did a complete project versus a rushed one). She painted the trunk and branches of the tree with brown paint and then dotted paint all over the tree in which she places crumpled bits of pink tissue paper. The final look is a sweet tree, perfect for Spring!
