Happy spring! If your weather is anything like ours, it feels more like the first day of summer today! Aside from playing outside a LOT today, Baby Bear and I celebrated the first day of spring by using this painting with cut straws technique from Putti Prapancha to paint some spring flowers. To keep Baby Bear from trying to suck from the straw, I folded the uncut end over into a handle and taped it in place. I showed Baby Bear how to made a couple of flowers using a straw and then handed the straws to him. Most of the flowers made it onto the paper, but a few ended up on his body as well. In the end, the toddler version of straw flowers looked more like fireworks, but it was still pretty cool!
