Learning About Months and Seasons

 

 

Kids Mobile Craft

 

 

This is a simple craft that focuses on the Months with corresponding month number. It also helps children learn which months are in each season.

Younger children will need some help putting this together. More advanced students/older students will be able to make it themselves.

We’ve included a printable template to make things easier for you. Find the link for the templates at the bottom of this post.

 

Materials Needed:

  • 13 – 12 inch long pieces of Yarn or String Cut
  • Paper Plate or a Lid from a Recycled Container (be creative)
  • PDF Printable of Months, Numbers, Pictures
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch
  • Tape or Glue (I prefer tape because no drying time)
  • Ruler
  • Crayons, Markers, Colored Pencils (optional)

 

Materials Needed for Months Mobile Craft

 

Let’s Get Started

Punch 12 evenly spaced holes around the outer edge of the plate. Decorate now if desired (see note and example below). Set aside.

 

Mobile Craft: Punch Holes in Plate

 

Note: If you want to enhance the project for more advanced/older students, use a paper plate as the top then divide the plate into quarters and decorate one quarter for each season. This also makes it easier to punch the holes without measuring.  Then follow the directions making sure to place the months in the correct season.

 We also give you a printable image with the seasons already divided to make it easier for younger students. They just have to cut out the circle and glue it to the plate.

Take one piece of yarn and lay it out vertically on the table. Place the number (ex: 1) about 2 inches from the top of the yarn and secure with either a dab of glue or piece of tape.

Place the name of the month (ex: January) about 1 inch below the number and secure with glue or tape.

Place the picture (ex: snowman) about 1 inch below the month name and secure with glue or tape. Look at the finished picture at top of post for guidance.

 

Tape month, number, and picture to Yarn

 

Thread the top of the yarn (with pieces attached) through one of the holes you previously punched out. Tie a knot at the top and secure with tape or a dab of glue for durability. Repeat for each month.
(optional) If you’re going to use the seasons make sure to match the correct month to each season.
