Colourful Waterlilies

The first week of kindergarten is over…and we survived! :) It was actually a very relaxing week, and the kids got used to the routines much more easily than I had expected. It might have been due to the fact that we only have one new child, and also to the very short summer holiday (compared to other countries). We had only 1 month of summer holiday.

My colleague (N.) has created these wonderful waterlilies with the kids and I wanted to share her idea with you.

We had a lot of plastic containers (from baby food, but you can use cottage cheese/yogurt containers), so she put them to good use. Apart from the containers, she used crepe paper, construction paper, glue, and glitter.

First, the children received a long strip of yellow construction paper, folded in half lengthwise. They had to cut parallel lines (2/3 from its width). Then they rolled the strip of paper and glued it in the middle of the plastic container. They cut some petals from crepe paper, which they glued around the yellow center. You can also make lily pads from felt or construction paper. The children can decorate their waterlilies with glitter, sequins, or buttons.
