i have a big file of crafts i think my kids would like but today i found this craft and we did it.
i found davinie through the crafty crow. (can i just say how much i ADORE the crafty crow?!!)
well....first we tried a pumpkin craft that did not go well.
too hard for the girls.
there was crying....and then i yelled...because crafts are supposed to be fun!!!
"THERE"S NO CRYING IN CRAFTING!!"
so i said "what about this one?" and pointed to the photo on my computer.
and the girls said "ooooohhhhh. yes!"
we changed gears and started again.
while they painted their plates i traced the petals.
i just made a quick template out of some cardboard (from a granola bar box)
the girls wanted colorful centers to their sunflowers....
sean's was brown....like a REAL sunflower....of course.
talby and sean used the glue gun.
annie used the school glue.
and then we were done.
it was a pretty fast craft considering we didn't mean to do it in the first place.
i was kind of bummed i didn't get to make one.
they needed me more....cutting petals and such.
we hung them all on the giant chalkboard so i get to look at them everyday.
