It's Spring!

Some of my readers are ready to shed their winter coats and finally enjoy some sunshine, gardening and kite flying.  Here in the desert we enjoyed about 3 weeks of spring and are now inching our way to 90 degrees.  The a/c is already running in our school building!  It's not stopping me from observing the true season.  :)

 Here are a few fun "spring" time activities we've done so far this season

Recycled Flowers!
I set out bowls of different sizes of lids, caps and tops to choose from.  Children put together the flowers by order sizing.  The leaves are painted coffee slips.  

Flower Books
I cut a long piece of sturdy paper, (11x18, I think) into strips, folded accordion style and the children cut and glued pictures of flowers, plants and vegetable gardens into their book.

Flower Shop!
After a generous donation of all types of silk flowers I new I had to come up with a flower shop.  I had buckets, pails, boxes and vases filled with flowers.  After the prices were set (by the children). the cashier was ready to sell!  It was a very busy store!


  1. So glad to see the flowers went to good use! Looks like fun!


  2. I love those recycled flowers! What a great use for lids!


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are...leave a comment! :)
