parts of a flower

Our science center has been all about plants and growing. This week I added a craft project to the science center as we talked about the parts of a flower.

Materials: Large white drawing paper, straws to use as stems, leaves from the scrapbook area at Michael's, yarn to use for the roots, sunflower seeds, and petals from The Dollar Tree (in the party/wedding area). I also added some little bees and butterflies that I found in my scrapbook stash.

Great idea Kat! I'll have to try this when we do our plant units!

I'm so excited! I went to our brand new Hobby Lobby yesterday. They had big bags (2 gallon) of random silk flower parts. Yea! Now I'm all set!!! Thanks for sharing this!
