Joyful Jewish

An easy vase of flowers for Shavuot

Posted on: 23 May, 2012

This was very popular with my Shabbat Tot group of 3 to 5 year olds this month, because it needed minimum adult intervention!

1. Glue a small coloured patty pan (cupcake liner) to the centre of a small paper doily.

2. Sticky tape a drinking straw to the back.

3. Decorate with stickers or textas if you’re in the mood.

4. Insert into vases.  To make an easy vase – decorate a small glass bottle with adhesive foam shapes.  I buy apricot nectar in six-packs of 125ml bottles (apricot chicken, mmmmmm) and saved them up over the year.  They are the perfect size to hold 3 paper flowers.
