Once she had (with a little help) cut out a few pictures I asked her what she wanted to glue them on to. She jumped up and came back with her "telescope" - an empty toilet paper roll from my ever growing stash. I'm always game, so without any expectations we started covering that tp roll, and then another and another. After 3 she started to get tired of cutting and ready to do something else.
A while later we came back and Chiquita added playdough to the bottom of the tubes so they would stay upright, just like we did with our stick decor. She actually had started talking about this part as soon as we'd decided to make the tubes the stems. She really liked the stick decor activity.
They are a fun and funky new decor for our house! At least until the real flowers start blooming around here. I'm considering spray painting the petals a little for a more aesthetically pleasing display. We'll see.
