Make a Changing Seasons Tree
Watching the seasons change can be a magical thing, but trying to explain the change of seasons to a young child can be a little bit challenging. A great way to do this is to let your child visualize the changes an apple tree goes through during the year. This activity provides a tangible record of the seasons changing that makes the concept easier to grasp. Recording the subtle differences in an apple tree that occur throughout the year provides your child with a better understanding of the effects of the seasons on plants and climate, while giving him a fun craft to work on at home.
