I dismantled a bunch of our play flowers so that the children could arrange flowers on our sticky easel. I added a paper vase and a few pipe cleaner stems and let them have a go at it. This is a nifty activity to invite both solitary play and companion play. A lot of dialogue happens here and it is really fun to watch. Many of these flower parts traveled back to our play dough table, some even made it into our play kitchen and ended up on pizza and in salad. I love seeing what they do with the materials we put out.
