Happy May Day~

Our day began with our Bible story and prayer then to calendar time. It is always SO fun when we start a new month and today was extra special because it was a holiday~ May Day! We read about it's history and began the big 'Flower Making' session! 
We started by reading Waiting for Wings discussing all the flowers in the book. We reviewed how a plant grows and the parts of a flower. We pulled out everything we could get our hands on from the Art cabinet and set to work~
 Our first projects were painting flowers with water bottles and forks  (on paper plates to be made into May Day baskets) then flower hand prints (to go on our wal).

We also made flowers from pipe cleaners and egg cartons~
 This day was right up Evie's alley... she LOVES everything art~ especially scissor, paint, and glue!!!

We had to let everything dry during rest and then we were off on the golf cart to deliver the baskets to our neighbors~
I can't tell you how thrilled they were to run to the door and greet each person... EK did very well saying, "We made flowers in school today and wanted to wish you a Happy May Day!" We are super blessed with our sweet neighborhood!!!

Luke 12:27
"Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are."
