We have been learning about gardens, vegetables and flowers with the children. The Sprouts class has been reading books about gardens and creating their own gardens with painted paper. They have been studying the preschool garden on the playground for changes and have noticed the tulips are about to bloom and the Kale leaves are growing larger!
For the painted paper garden, the children first drew lines with oil pastels and crayons on white water color paper. They then painted one brown for the soil and the other paper blue for the sky. They took painted paper cut into shapes and glued their "vegetables" onto their project. Orange carrots and purple beets grow inside the soil. The tomatoes and blueberries grow on top of the soil. We love their colorful and bright "gardens!"
