Flower Power!

We are sorry you missed this great program on Wildflowers of New York. We investigated flower shapes and put our knowledge to the test by viewing slides of flowers, identifying their shape and looking up their information in the flower guide. It was easy, fun and educational! Our sole attendee shared his knowledge of flowers and he’s only six years old. What a smart young man. We created flowers using pre-cut shapes, beads and colored wire. What do you think of his bouquet? Simply wonderful, I say.

If you missed this class, the next after school discovery program is October 8 from 3:30 to 4:30pm and the study will be on Seashore Life with a seashell craft. See you then!
