April Watercolor flowers and Kite Poems

April Showers bring Pretty Spring Flowers.....and KITES! 
We made DIAMONTE Poetry on Kites this week.....and Coffee Filter Flowers 
DIAMONTE POEMS are poems in a diamond pattern...they go like this...
                     1 word                                                                    
        2 word phrase describing above word        
3 words ending in "ing" describing first word  (participles)
         2 words (adjectives)                                          
                    1 word (synonym of 1st word)        

   See a link HERE for instructions and a sample form.           
We painted coffee filters and added sunflower seeds and stems....

Our  bulletin board reads "April Showers Bring Pretty Spring Flowers"

Pretty Springtime Kite poetry 

We added chains to each kite of our spelling words written two times each....

The flowers can be either painted with water colors or dipped in food coloring and dried.....
We did it both ways and the food coloring way is definitely easier and less messy! 
Just snip a little strip in between two folds so every 3rd fold cut out....

Paint the center area a different color and when dried add the sunflower seeds to the flower....

They were all different color combinations....really cute....

So were our poems from all things SPRING! 

Sports were represented......as well as......

Allergies of course.....and......

Insects of all sorts.....

And Springtime Animals too......can't forget those......

And all kinds of weather and flowers...and even Hunting! 

Of course football....we have some die hard football lovers here.....

And Gardening too....


Easter poems  too....

And plants...I think we covered it all! 


This is an easy art project for spring....coffee filter flowers....

Dip them.....dry them....trim them....and glue them on a stem with a leaf.....


We backed our flowers with another filter just to keep them looking 3 D and perky.... 

It was fun and easy! Dip and Dry....then trim them and embellish them....


This little girl "rounded" her petals on her Spring Watercolored flowers  too.  

Gotta love the flower with a face, am I right?   Happy Spring Everybody!
