April showers bring May flowers...

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!
