This Four Season Shape Tree Craft is such a fun way for kids to get creative and learn about 2D shapes at the same time.
Our autumn Owl Shape Craft has also been a big hit with readers so I thought it would be nice to make an autumn tree shape craft too.
These are two fun math art / craft activities that go so well together and can be enjoyed all year round!
Four Season Shape Trees are a lovely way to introduce kids to 2D shapes and to consolidate learning all through the year.
It’s such an easy seasons craft to set up with the printable templates.
This math art covers the following nine shapes: circles, ovals, semi-circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons and octagons.
The printable tree templates comes in four sets of colours, one for each season.
For Spring blossom there are pink and purple shapes, for Summer leaves there are green shapes, for Autumn leaves there are yellow, red and orange shapes and for Winter there are white snowflake shapes.
There’s also an additional black/white set which children can enjoy colouring in themselves.
I’ve designed the template sets so that you can work on the shapes of your choice to meet the needs of your children or students. There is the flexibility to choose either just one shape, a combination of shapes or all of them.

How To Make Season Shape Trees
1 – Download and print the the Shape Tree Templates. Choose from ready coloured or black and white.
2 – Cut out the pieces for the season of your choice.
3 – Cut out the rectangles to make the tree. Onto a sheet of paper, glue the largest rectangle for the trunk, the medium sized rectangles for the branches.
4 – Then glue on the smallest rectangles for the twigs.
5 – Decorate your tree with the shapes that you cut out. Pink/purples for Spring, greens for Summer, oranges for Autumn and white for Winter.
(If you are making an Autumn tree then it’s nice to glue some of the shapes onto the ground of your picture to look like fallen leaves.)
