Super Simple Service with a Purpose
This project is incredibly easy, especially made for even your youngest of kids!
It was a super simple (FREE) way to share some sunshine with our elderly neighbors and shut-ins. We also gave each of our dance teachers a bundle as a thank you gift. Teachers, secretaries, grandparents, nursing home patients, anyone really would love a little bit of brightness in their day, especially from such sweet little ones as your kids!
In our perennial gardens, the daffodils have been blooming for about a week. Since many of the stems have bent and the flowers are touching the ground, it's the perfect time to harvest the blooms. Spring and summer flowers are getting ready to share their colorful glory, so any time is a great time to give some away!
Any type of wildflower or perennial that may be growing in your yard
Twine or ribbon
Who can do this project:
- My 3-year old is practicing her scissor skills, so it was the perfect opportunity for her to trim the daffodils and get some more fine motor skills practice. She doesn't know how to tie the bundles together, but she held them while I tied the twine gently around each group of flowers.
- If your littles are younger and/or not ready for scissors, just practicing the motor skills of picking up and holding the flowers upright will be helpful. Color a fun picture to personalize your Daffodil Delivery, and deliver with a smile!
- If your kids are older than 5, give them the whole task of trimming, tying the ribbon or twine, wetting paper towels and wrapping the stems (if you're not delivering immediately). They could make a card to complete the little delivery package too!
