May Day Flowers

Ol' Fashioned May Day Fun!

What neighbor wouldn't appreciate a doorknob full of kid-fashioned flowers for May Day?

Take a handful of coffee filters, some food coloring and paint brushes or eye droppers to make the flowers. (Dilute food coloring, add brush or dropper to each color, let kids "paint".)  Leave several attached together to paint 3 at a time.  After drying, twist each coffee filter into flower shape with a pipe cleaner/chenille stem.  Put a half a dozen in a decorated cone shaped from construction paper. On May Day morning, have the kids hang a bouquet from each door knob... My kids loved the art, and the surprise!
