The kids had a wonderful time making bouqets and May day cones for our neighbors. It was a fun way to celebrate by giving to others. (though it took a bit of explaining as to why we don't need to get something in return!) First the girls painted and cut paper to make cones, then we decorated them with ribbons, collected flowers and arranged them.
Finally we went around and delivered them on doorknobs. The girls were a bit shy but giddy with excitement.
