Flower power- easy flower masks.


How fun is it to have supplies on hand to make a special project.

Precut flowers- I use a Sizzex( from Michaels craft store) or hand cut diffferent shapes and sizes

Paper plates, tempra paints, glue, pipe cleaners, elastic string

Kids love these masks, they are easy, and children come up with all sorts of imaginary play. This can be extended from reading/ singing, ” Over in the garden”.  Add  jewels, sequins, buttons, other plants, and bugs into the flower masks.  More flower projects , stay tuned. We had a flower parade and added our crepe paper streamers.

Fun summer activity


Everyone has flour and water.  Give the child two cups, one with flour, one with a small amount of water, a plastic spoon and a bowl for mixing, (food coloring if you want  them to make other choices.)  Let the child mix up his own glue, it is messy, but they love the consistancy and knowing they did the experiement. Let them choose things to put in their glue.  Explain what they are making ahead of time.  This is a good project for 3.5- 4 year olds.

It is an expeiment to make glue, what is the right combination of water and flour?
