Our inside flower garden

Today we made a flower garden inside on the wall.  At least it started as a flower garden and turned into a lot more.  I usually put this on my easel at school, but we don't have one at home.  The wall worked well.

We started by taping clear contact paper to the wall sticky side out. 
We then took felt shapes and stuck them to the contact paper.
I wanted her to use the shapes creatively to make flowers, so I did not make any direct flower shapes.
Then she asked for a sun and clouds and rain for her garden.
The great thing about this activity is it is removable and re-doable.

If you have a large window or door with windows, check out this website for another way to use foam shapes.  This one uses wet foam shapes to stick to the window.
