Spring Flower Arrangements

Spring Flower (7)

We’re only one week away from the end of spring and the spring flowers are fading, making room for summer counterparts. It’s the perfect time to put together a floral arrangement for someone special – perhaps a graduate in your life, or a dad you’re celebrating this weekend!

Travis wanted to put together this bouquet for dad; we skipped the store-bought stuff, and opted instead for a wildflower hunt! (Okay, maybe a hunt around our apartment complex).

Travis loved gathering an assortment of greenery and different colored blossoms, as we took care to take only one flower from each bush.

Once home, we laid out the flowers and a pretty vase. Fill the vase 2/3 of the way with water – a good little fraction lesson!

To help our flowers stay healthy and strong, we added 1/2 teaspoon sugar and 1 tablespoon cider vinegar.

Travis was then in charge of arranging our blooms. Any that were too long, he seriously and carefully snipped shorter.

Teach your child to hold the stem of each flower on the outside of the vase to assess if it is too long or too short.

Tada! A beautiful spring bouquet.
