Flower Arranging

The Butterflies explored making flower arrangements as part of our growth and life cycles theme. The children looked at the the flower as a whole and used scissors to cut the the flowers to the desired sized. Manipulating the scissors as they cut the soft texture and practised early scissor skills and hand eye co-ordination. Children arranged the flowers into pots, carefully placing the flowers inside. Children talked about what the flowers might need such as water and sun. They used watering cans to fill the arrangements with water.
