After having 40 bags of wet beads hanging in the conservatory two weeks ago, I now have had 40 flowers drying. And they are beautiful! The children chose some amazing colours for their flowers. When I returned some of the flowers to the students, they were amazed at how well they came out. I put the flowers into glasses and cups to dry them so they get a flower shape to them. The children have then added centres or stamens to the flowers and one of the boys made his into a spider! Here is a photo of some of the flowers from a primary aged group after school program.
