Organic gardening, bugs and all
Just had the best day at flower school today. Taking the kids in pairs the classroom assistant and I actually managed to get the kids sewing on the big frame. They drew and cut out the leaves themselves, we used green straws for the stems and don't forget the fabulous googly eyed bugs.
We had one child on the floor beneath the table height frame and one child above. I made the pilot holes with a stiletto (?) - you know, pointy thing - and kids passed the needle and thread up and down through these holes, couching all the relevant bits into place. Worked a treat!
I think these would make the wonderful greetings cards but I'm not really au fait with the best programmes for doing that kind of thing. Any recommendations for printing out some cards? Which would be the best programme to use? Thanks blog buddies.
