Supplies Used: Cardstock, Chalk, Crayons, Glitter, Glue, Pen, Ribbon, Scissors, Tape (Double-Sided), Thread (Embroidery)

The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Die-cut two LG Basic Beginnings Lacing Square using blue cardstock or construction paper.
  2. Cut four 7" lengths of blue embroidery thread.
  3. Cut eight 2" x 1/2" rectangles using white paper. Write Summer, Fall, winter and Spring on two each of the rectangles.

  5. Adhere 1" of an embroidery thread to the non-glitter side of a Snowflake. Adhere the other Snowflake, sandwiching the thread between the two Snowflakes (Figure A).
  6. Attach one Winter rectangle to the thread just above the Snowflake. Adhere the other Winter rectangle, sandwiching the thread between the two rectangles.
  7. Die-cut two LG Clouds using white paper. Add highlights using chalk or crayons.
  8. Adhere 1" of a thread to a large Cloud. Adhere the other large Cloud, sandwiching the thread between the two Clouds.
  9. Adhere and align the smaller Clouds to the front and back of the large Cloud (Figure B).
