Button Flowers

We have a great selection of buttons in our art area.
Sorted by colour in separate containers.
Today I placed them on the table with green coloured pencils, crayons, markers
                                             and glue.
            The materials were used to create button flower gardens.

        Each child had a vision of what their gardens would look like.
         The older children created flowers that were realistic.
The younger children showed more abstract flowers, not yet drawing stems
and leaves.  And I notice more movement with their flowers.
            I feel the wind blowing the flowers in this art piece.
           Just like dandelion fluff being blown off the main stem.
