First day of spring!

Happy Spring!
I've seen this craft idea a few times, and I think it is really cute! We did this today at the Y for TGIF. Sweetpea stayed at my house with Grandma while I was there, so she wanted to do one when I got home. We took a blue piece of construction paper and glued 5 green strips on it.

Next we used 5 mini cupcake holders flatened, and glued one on each stem. After that she glued five mini cupcake holders to the centers.

Finally she glued on some leaves.

Isn't it sweet!

Here is a poem we glued onto it at the Y:

5 Little Daffodils Fingerplay
One little daffodil had nothing much to do,
Out popped another one, then there were two.
Two little daffodils were smiling at a bee,
Out popped another one, then there were three.
Three little daffodils were growing by the door,
Out popped another one and then there were four.
Four little daffodils were glad to be alive,
Out popped another one and then there were five.
Five little daffodils were wearing golden crowns,
They danced in the breeze in green satin gowns.

I got this over at http://katiesnestingspot.blogspot.com/2009/03/storytime-art-cupcake-holder-daffodils.html

Simple and sweet craft.

After looking at your other posts, your kids do a really great job. It looks like they are always having a great time too.

Thanks for sharing with us.
