I made the flower with foam, a pipe cleaner and a green straw.
I cut out 2 flower shapes from pink foam and one circle from yellow foam to fit in the middle of the flower. I punched a hole in the 2 flower shapes and poked 2 small holes in the circle. Next, I threaded the 2 flower shapes onto the pipe cleaner leaving a tale at the end. Then I added the circle foam and put the pipe cleaner back through the holes and twisted it around the tale to secure it. Finally, I put the tale end of the pipe cleaner in one end of the straw with some glue to help hold it in place. For the leaves I just cut out a double leaf shape from green foam, punched a hole in the middle and stuck the straw through it.
I poked a hole in the bottom of the paper cup and put the straw through the hole so that the flower can be pulled and pushed up and down into and out of the cup.
The Way We Plant Our Seed
To the tune of "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush"
This is the way we plant our seed, plant our seed, plant our seed.
This is the way we plant our seed so early in the morning!
(Keep the flower in the cup and pretend to plant a seed)
This is the way our seed will grow, seed will grow, seed will grow.
This is the way our seed will grow so early in the morning!
(Push the bottom of the straw up to make the flower pop out of the cup)
