Seeds to Flowers

Hello Crafty Friends,
 
Happy Spring!
 The weather is absolutely beautiful today, which means this project is perfect for sharing and growing.
 
My class began a new Science unit on Life Cycles just before Spring Break and when we return we will continue another week with the plant life cycle before learning about animal life cycle the following week.  What better way to learn than by watching your own plant grow.
 
I made this treat bag for each student. It is a mixture of Wildflower seeds. 
 I found this small box at Walmart and was worried it wouldn't fill enough bags. To my surprise I have plenty left. I could actually make another class set.
Here is my assembly line of materials
Flowers are mixed and matched. The tag was adhered to plastic bag with a glue square and I used a glue stick for the flowers. 
Green scraps were cut into strips and then fed thru a crimper to make the grass.
Future Bouquet of Wildflowers
Materials:
