We are really wishing for spring right now. So we have been making all types of crafty flowers. For these you just need some craft sticks, glue and maybe buttons or pom poms. We choose a "stem" and then glued the craft sticks into a star shaped pattern. We added a button for the middle. When they dried, we stuck a ball of play dough into a clean, plastic snack cup and then stuck the flowers in it. T said his was not a flower but a carnival ride! Whatever name is given them, they were simple, fun and a reminder that Spring will eventually be here.
