Make it Monday: Flower Patterns
It’s been a pretty wet spring but we’re hopeful that the official start to summer (June 21) means the nicer weather is here to stay. In the event that there is more rain, follow Ms. Lauren’s instructions for a fun rainy day activity that will brighten your home!
FLOWER PATTERNS SHARED By: Lauren Patton, Teacher at York Avenue Preschool
What You’ll Need:
- a paper circle
- six paper petals
- tissue paper
- one large popsicle stick
What You’ll Do:
First, we got the circle for the middle of the flower and painted it.
Then, we each got six plain petals and picked two colors of tissue paper that we wanted to use and chose the type of pattern we wanted to make. We chose either AB pattern or an ABB/AAB pattern. We crumbled up little pieces of tissue paper to fill each petal.
When they were all filled we arranged them around the circle in our pattern. The last thing we did was color in the popsicle stick green with oil pastels to make the stem and attached it to the flower.
All of our flowers were different colors and made a beautiful display in our classroom!
