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
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.
