Part of the fun around these parts in the summer is making things. Sometimes they imitate nature. The lesson here includes painting, color mixing and random cutting. In the end we get a bouquet of flowers mimicking the real bloomers outside. Tissue paper folded into quarters, painted with watercolors, cut around the edges to frilly satisfaction and then twisted around a chenille stem. Pop it into your own home made vase or glass bottle you have tied a ribbon around. Pretend that they smell divine! Ahhhh, summer!
