Fabulous Junk Flowers!
On Monday I ran another children's craft workshop at Corfe Mullen Library. This time it was flower and plant themed and I had made a couple of examples for the kids to copy; a simple daisy in a plant pot made from single use cups and a drinking straw and my personal favourite; a venus fly trap made from a paper plate and some googly eyes. Can you tell how much I loved Sesame Street when I was younger? If you look really closely you can see that he has a 'fly' in his mouth.
I showed these examples to the children but sort of just let them have at it and interpret them however they liked with the given materials (it's more wild that way):
|It's creative mess, OK?|
They came up with some really awesome plant creature creations!
