Flower Arranging, Spring Is Coming!

This weekend I took the kids to a craft store to choose some silk flowers. They picked a great variety, so we will out out new flowers often. In New England, the sure way to see Spring is a search for daffodils. Once they pop up on Cape Cod, summer is on the way! We had a great time decorating our room with flowers. All you need is some flowers (silk until we grow some) and child-safe vases!

This is one my son's favorite activities. I love finding tiny vases of fresh flowers throughout the house. He picks flowers from our yard/garden and buys them at farmer's market. Now that he is older he likes trimming the flowers and cutting open the package of flower food.

I loved having a flower arranging activity available this time of year! Thanks for your photos and directions showing just how simple such a beautiful activity can be! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/LivingMontessoriNow

Hi Jessie,

What a wonderful blog you have here. It's so simple and beautiful. My little man is not yet two but I have been using Montessori the best way I know how for about the last year. I'm not trained but try to go on what I have read in books and blogs. Your insights are going to be so helpful. I'm so pleased I found your blog - I came here from Living Montessori Now (thanks Deb).

I'll be back for sure :)

Flower arranging is a favorite work in our house. We also went to the store & my oldest daughter picked black and white roses because she said she wanted them to match our new painted house...

Kids are so cute!
