Flower Garden

We enjoyed a spring craft party this morning.  I LOVE the energy so many kiddos bring into the house!  16 kids and 7 mommas made 2 crafts:  Hatching Easter Grass and a flower garden made from coffee filters and cupcake liners.  We had a good time!

This is what we did:

  1. We used 9 in. x12 in. paper.
  2. The kids painted the bottom of the paper with brown paint.  Then they sprinkled ground coffee into the paint to make it look like dirt.
  3. Glue a green bendy thing onto the paper (Elmers School Glue) for the stem.
  4. Use Dot Art dabbers to decorate coffee filters, and different sized cupcake liners.
  5. Glue the liners to the paper.
  6. Add other artistic elements! 
Before we made the two projects, we read the book:  Then Its Spring by Julie Fogliano.
