May Day, Cinco de Mayo, and a Month Old!

For Mayday we made paper plate baskets, and watercolor coffee filter flowers.

Our supplies:

  • coffee filters
  • green pipe cleaners
  • watercolors, brushes, water
  • flimsy paper plates
  • stapler
  • assorted flower stickers

First, we watercolored the coffee filters and hung our “flowers” out to dry.  Then we made and decorated the baskets.

The finished products:


The Cinco de Mayo flag idea I got from here.


The results:


They started to color the center column just like they saw it in the atlas, then they decided to redesign what they thought it should look like.  I live with creative children…

BTW, my son took the final pics. of the flags; that’s his shadow you see.

And now, for little man, at one month:


And a shot of him and his big baby blues:
