Spring came late to Minnesota this year. We've had lots of snow, rain, and cold. We needed to bring a little spring into our classroom!
The first flower project I'm sharing is made with contact paper and tissue paper. Older students can cut their own flowers, but I cut them out for my preschoolers.
Students arranged their spring gardens on 1/2 of their contact paper. (Fold it in half first and it's easy to see the line).
They look beautiful on the windows with the light shining through. The day I took these was very cloudy!
The next flower project might be my favorite of the year. We were inspired by Picasso's flowers for this project. I traced each child's hands and cut out stems, ovals and petals.
We made a pod podged group project first and then the preschoolers each made their own.
Picasso would be proud!
