Four Seasons Craft

by | Feb 25, 2008 | Crafts, Little Saints Preschool, Nature | 1 comment

Our recent spotting of our first bud of spring triggered a conversation about the four seasons. Since Twinkle Toes really enjoyed making the craft on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, I decided to have her make a similar one found in the Little Saints program.

First we read a few picture books, including:

Then, it was on to the craft! First she colored the truck and branches of four trees:

After that, she glued them onto a piece of construction paper and made little balls out of small pieces of tissue paper (brown, green, pink and yellow for each of the various seasons) and glued them onto the trees:

Then she added a few appropriate stickers, and I helped her with labeling the seasons:

**I just noticed I took the picture before having her add apples falling from the fall tree…
You’ll just have to imagine them! 🙂

It is such a fun craft, and quite easy–a definate plus!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
