Four Seasons Handprint Trees Craft

Four Seasons Handprint Trees

Making crafts is one of my favorite pastimes with which to share with my children. Last summer during our homeschool preschool lesson on the seasons, my daughter and I made four seasons handprint trees.



  1. Trace your child’s hand and arm on a piece brown paper.
  2. Cut out four brown hand and arm prints.
  3. Glue the brown handprints to the blue paper with the fingers pointing up.
  4. Decorate each handprint with painted fingerprints for each of the four seasons. (White snow for winter. Light green for spring. Dark green for summer. Red, orange, and yellow for fall.)
  5. Write the name of each season across the top of each handprint tree craft with a marker.

Winter Handprint Tree Spring Handprint Tree
Summer Handprint Tree Fall Handprint Tree

    I am definitely going to do this – I love hand print art, but paint is a bit messy all the time! Kaz x

    I really love this craft. I think both my kiddos would enjoy it. I haven’t taken the paint out much lately because the toddler + paint = SCARY. lol! I think this would be a good way to give her a purpose with the paint and have a cute keepsake later!!

    Your art activities are really fun! I wish I had these ideas when my kids were little. I will share this with my friends who have young kids.

    What a great idea. We are working on learning months and seasons, so we will have to do this craft soon.

    What a great idea for little ones. Also a great craft for being locked up indoors from all the cold weather.

    This is the cutest project! My SIL homeschools her children as well. I will have to share this with her. I’m not sure how far she plans ahead, but this would be perfect to begin in spring when the trees are budding! 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Heather!

    Super cute. My daughter is super into painting and brings home a picture from preschool everyday. We will have to try this next craft time! Simple but very entertaining & creative. <3

    This is really cute! It reminds me of one I did last year where I painted the tree and had her hand prints be the leaves. This will be great when we get to learning about seasons.

    No little ones… but always have loved how crafts incorporate lil one’s body parts – hands and feet. 😉
