Recently Holly enjoyed creating an art project form old magazines. She created flowers which worked well with our current plant unit! We created three templates in which she would trace over a magazine page with nice color and then cut them out. Three in total. After they are cut out she would fold them over three times, similar to cutting a snowflake, and trim the edges into fun flowers shapes. Once they were all trimmed up she then layered them and secured them with a brad to her paper. After all of her flowers were created she added stems and leaved. They turned out wonderful, have great color and patterns, and better yet the folding offered some fun dimension to this project. The best part though... it was created with recycled materials - a lesson in re-using (a great tie into Earth Day).
