Paper plate gardens

Today we made our own little garden using felt offcuts and small sized patty pans. Bubble really enjoyed this activity and spent ages making her stems as straight as she could - I think they look great!


* green felt offcuts for the stems
* small patty pans for the flowers - Bubble really enjoyed turning them over and flattening each one with her hands.
* child safe glue (Clag)
* paper plate

Other ideas: you could add bug and butterfly stickers to your garden, or even use essential oils to add a further sensory experience. Sand or soil sprinkled over glue would also look great underneath the flower stems as the garden bed.
