Directions

Start by downloading the spring template and printing it out. Once you have the template printed, gather the materials needed for this fun activity. Get those scissors ready, and let’s help the kids bring this spring scene to life!

Now, it’s time to start assembling the elements. Help the kids glue the outer part of the sun to the top left section of the construction paper. Then, guide them to add the inner part of the sun at the center of the outer part.

Next up, let’s assist them in adding some fluffy clouds to the scene. Guide the kids to place the cloud on the right side of the sun, ensuring that it slightly overlaps with the sun.

Finally, let’s complete the spring scene by guiding the kids to glue the rainwater onto the bottom of the colored paper. Optionally, use a white paint pen or white marker to draw smaller raindrops around the paper.
