This weekend I needed to empty one of my vases which had been used for my birthday flowers but now they were looking a little dead. So I decided to save the petals for P to use for a craft doing the weekend.
I thought the petals would make a lovely collaging activity, maybe a secret garden or for butterfly/fairies wings. P was very excited to use a different media in her art. What I love about using petals is that if you don't use them all up you can always put them in a freezer bag and save them for another time.
Once I had set up the table we discussed what P could use them for in her picture. The first thing that came into P's head before I could even suggest my ideas was confetti. I love that P clearly remembers every part of our wedding and just is what she decided to make a picture of. I don't think it is too clear but she even gave daddy some flowers for in his pocket.
