m is for may day

we made more straw flowers this year…but encouraged adding as many blooms per straw as they liked.

before we could make the flowers, we had to get our straws ready.  we had a big box of wrapped straws that had to be unwrapped…and we made it a game of “get mr. rob.”

then with flowers cut, holes punched and straws unwrapped, flowers were made.

  1. I love the straws and paper flowers. I’ll definitely use this.

    Your commitment to letting the children experiment in their work is a continued inspiration.


  2. I really like this idea. I think I will try it, and maybe cut a few different shapes. I saw this with fabric and pipe cleaners, but I actually like the paper and straws better.


  3. I always love to look at your posts, I am a pre-k teacher and I love how you have open-ended activites…..that’s what I do as well! Such cute kids!


  4. I always loved blowing the wrappers off straws in restaurants, but it seems like they don’t work any more. Every time I try it there’s already a hole in the wrapper. How sanitary is that? You must have got your hands on the last good box. Lucky!
