Growing up we had a neighbor who would drop little May baskets every year. I just loved it!
So that's what we set off to do today. I initially wanted to do some recycled strawberry basket weaving...
(project we saw at the Earth Day Celebration)
but May Cones were a lot easier for the little ones to make.
Some were rolled up pictures they'd drawn and some were old scrapbooking papers they found.
Each May Day Cone was handmade by little F and E.
The flowers were leftover from birthday bouquets.
A few weeks ago we pressed some flowers from our garden.
We picked these flowers, can you guess which one is a fake (hair clip)?
Here's our little Root Children flower press...isn't it sweet?
We did two layers of flowers...
We kept this one out and F took pictures, she just loved this daisy.
This was the fake flower from the basket by the way.
Happy May Day!
