It has been fun to watch the children, eyes full of fascination, looking up at the humongous faces on the sunflowers in our garden...
It made sense to me then, that for the first project of the year we would create our own. It was a good exercise for us too...we could get a feel for where all the new children are in some basic preschool exercises...like using a scissors and properly holding a paint brush. There were quite a few steps involved, from painting the flower centers, to painting and cutting out the petals. Once the petals were glued on, each child taped a piece of looped string on the back for hanging. They were delighted with their creations.
Sadly though, we will not be having our own sunflower revolution (as I had hoped) since the squirrels have run away with every single sunflower head.
