m is for may day…and mother’s day!

may day

we made these flowers on may day (though several kids said i should bring these supplies out to make their mamas flowers next week!  but we will do a new project…hopefully as fancy as years past).

this is a very simple eye-hand coordination activity. pre cut flowers with holes punched in the middle fit perfectly on straws!

we also made may day baskets out of folders (folded in half, glued on the bottom half edges). the children cut on two lines to create the handle (which fits just so on a door knob).

may day by you.

writing and decorating was optional.

after snack time, the children usually head out into the classroom for work time or project time. not today! after snack the preschoolers went for book time (when they sit in our circle time corner and look at books together) while i hid the flowers.

my favorite hiding spot.

then we did some math to figure out how many flowers each could find…and they were off.

no pictures at the end, but trust me they were cute with their baskets of 5 flowers each. : )
