Adventure Group -Butterflies and Flowers
Our Adventure Group session today was all about summer! We started off with a story time, and Sally read 'Mother Earth And Her Children' which is all about the flowers waking up and blossoming and has beautiful illustrations through it.
Then the children had a choice of crafts, we had wet coloured butterflies (made from filter papers), mosaic flowers and recycled bumble bees.
Hannah and her friend Melissa made butterflies and flowers together.
We cut the butterfly shapes out of the coffee filter papers, coloured them in with washable felt pens and then sprayed them with water, the colours made a tie dyed effect and were beautiful when they dried.
Then the girls used coloured paper, card and crayons to make some lovely summer flowers!
After that they ran off to play, had a picnic at the top of a climbing tower and read their books in the sunshine - unfortunately i didn't make it to the top of the tower to take pictures so you'll just have to take my word for it - they had a really fun time!!
