Yesterday I mentioned that I popped into Michael's to buy some ribbon for a project I was working on with my pre-school class.
Well, this is what they made...
Faux forsythia made with pipe cleaners...to give to their moms in celebration of the first day of Spring!
The "blossoms" are wrapped in these colored coffee like filters we have in the supply room.
As usual...the photos are lousy, but I hope you get the idea.
A few of the children (4's) had some difficulty with the fine motor skill of twisting the yellow pipe cleaner...but they all enjoy keeping a secret and so were all eager to make their blossoms.
They were equally excited today to present their "bouquets" to their moms.
Wishing you a...Happy Spring!
