This rose is my first full blown bloom of the season 🙂 I currently only have 4 rose bushes, but am hoping to replace the two the deer ate to death soon. This is one of my favorite pinks, though. Did I mention these are huge blooms?
Setting up a Montessori Flower Arranging Activity
To set up your activity, you will need to choose a vase or container, a small selection of flowers, a container with water for the vase, and a towel in case of spills.
We have a rose, an iris stem, some rosemary and a mint sprig alongside our water and vase.
Mr. T loves anything where he gets to pour water. Check out that grin 🙂 Pouring is an excellent activity for toddlers to help develop motor skills and visual perception.
Even the littlest helpers can practice concentration when given an important task.
I told you they were huge blooms! It’s almost the same size as Mr. T’s head! Because we’ve been working on pouring, there are only a few spots where the water missed the vase.
Mr. T’s finished floral arrangement for us to enjoy for a few days. I love having flowers we can cut and keep in the house to make things pretty and for Mr. T to develop an appreciation for all God’s beauty.
