Spring Projects - post #1 of many :)

I love this time of the year. Winter is over and we are all ready to enjoy SPRING!
In my classroom, we are busy creating beautiful spring related projects in addition to our daily academic routines. I am going to post LOTS of cute ideas and pics, so please visit often or - even better - follow my blog!
Here is our first Spring related project. Children used paints and their thumbprints/fingerprints to create beautiful flowers. They cut the leaves out of green construction paper and used green markers for the stems. I had some foam bugs and had the children add them to their projects. They turned out so beautiful and different just like my kiddos in class!
What do you think?
I LOVE them!
