This week we decided to take a closer look at flowers.
First stop - the library.
This one was the best book we found:

I copied some of the pages so we could laminate them and keep them around.

Also picked-up little flower window stickers...

Next we talked about the anatomy of flowers, and did a flower craft.
The top flower is Chase's, the bottom is Madoc's.

Then we talked about seeds a little... about poisonous plants and about edible plants. Chase kindly arranged a tasting platter...

Tasted sunflower seeds (Chase liked them, Mads didn't)

Tried poppy seeds (Again, Chase liked them, Mads didn't) ...

And Mads didn't like the pumpkin seed either...

I bought some Chinese chrysanthemums and made tea for the girls.

Chase made a flower journal...

Made poppy seed cake (thanks Brigitte!)

Visited the flower shop to pick up some pots to paint and seeds to plant.
Also on the agenda for today is pressing flowers.

Next week we are going to take a closer look at the ocean.
