April Showers Bring May Flowers




Even though we didn't end April with showers, it was a cloudy day. We had plenty of rain last weekend however. I can't believe that tomorrow is already May Day.


Today we used watercolor paints on paper plates for our umbrella shapes. I cut out somewhat of a flower shape out of several colors of tissue paper. The kids selected 3 colors to layer to make a flower. They each made 5 flowers for their umbrella. They glued a yellow construction paper circle in the center of each flower. We tucked green construction paper leaves under some of the flowers as well.

    I found your blog through Marie at Make and Takes. I taught preschool for a couple of years out of my home. Love that you're doing a similar thing! Best of luck, in that regard! I'll probably be back for more ideas!

  5. I'm so grateful to you for sharing this project. My daughter and I were searching for a unique May basket idea and your fit the bill exactly. We tweaked your directions a bit so our could hold real flowers and they turned out so cute! Again, thanks!
