watermelons and sunflowers {preschool arts and crafts}

Pin It
little man wanted to make 2 specific things the other day.  we had gotten done reading Watch Me Grow: Blue Plants a Seed and little man was feeling inspired.  (i'm not sure where the watermelon part came from though...)  he wanted to make
wAtERmeLoNS and sUNfLowERs

making projects like this sort of bother me because they are somewhat close-ended with a planned result.  on the other hand, i am proud of his appreciation for preplanning and realism.

so we got out the paint, the paper, and the glue and went to town.
