Lily Stalks, Scissors, Cardboard and GluePosted: September 21, 2012 | Author: Jena | Filed under: after school cool down, Artsy Fartsy, Building, Cut and Paste, Garden, Outside, Recycling, Sculpture, Small Motor Skill | Leave a comment »
Lily stalks are really fun and satisfying to snip with scissors.
For the younger kids, this may be too hard for their little hand muscles, but it’s a great challenge for the older kids.
I’ll warn you, the pieces pop up when they are cut and can be a hazard to those Betty Davis eyes, so hold it away from you as you snip.
I snatch up some interesting cardboard from our stash and some of our colored glue, arranging it all on the cement porch, right next to our lily patch.
The kids busy themselves, snipping and gluing.
