On this beautiful morning, we read books about flowers and made some flowers of our own. We read My Garden by Kevin Henkes about a girl who wished her garden grew things like chocolate rabbits, seashells, and jellybeans! We read about a boy who planted a bulb (the seed kind, not the light kind!) in That's Not a Daffodil by Elizabeth Honey. And we read Flower Garden by Eve Bunting about a city child who made a window box garden as a surprise for her mother.
Then we made a garden from paper stems and leaves and cupcake liners, big and small. We colored the liners, then glued them to paper, Next we decorated them with sequins, pompoms, cotton balls, buttons, slices of pool noodles - and all sorts of tiny craft materials! No two flowers were alike!
What beautiful gardens!
