Finger print flowers for May Day

My Pinterest stream is full of pretty Spring flowers so I thought it was time we crafted some of our own. Little Sis chose her favourite colours of paint and I set her up with some white paper and an apron. I drew two lines on the paper then she carefully poured out some paint and used her fingers to make the flowers.

She went along each pencil line with her finger print flowers, up one side and down the other.

We left the paint to dry then she went over the pencil line with a thick green crayon.

She added some leaves to finish off her finger print hyacinths.

What do you think? This is a simple craft activity but looks great for our May Day celebrations.

Homework time for Little Sis

We spent the morning writing in the Class Bear’s book. Well, Mummy wrote the words whilst Little Sis stuck in a photo of her and the Class Bear at the fairy tree.

Then she added her own drawing of a fairy.

We quite enjoyed having the Class Bear to stay. We sent him back to nursery with a new toothbrush all ready for the next person to take him home.

A visit from the Class Bear

My heart sunk a little when Little Sis came home with the Class Bear today. However she was very excited. First she took him outside on the new trampoline whilst I looked at his book.

Fortunately we were the first to have him!  This meant we couldn’t look through his book to see what adventures he had been having. We decided to take him to visit the fairy house in the woods. Big Brother wanted to write a letter to leave for them.

We waited for Daddy to come home from work then took the Class Bear for a ride in the car. Big Brother left his mail – fingers crossed for a reply soon.
