It was of course packed out the day before Mother's Day (which was great for them to see so many other people loving flowers and buying big bunches), we managed to find a park and have a great time together. I took the girls around the different stalls, showing them all the different types of flowers. I showed them that some flowers are more for look/decoration and some are for their lovely aroma. It is wonderful when you can find both together.
I took them into the cold rooms to see how they keep the flowers fresh and that was not a favourite place to be early on a Saturday morning for them! I asked them to look around to choose which flower they liked best, we smelt it, we touched it, we discussed why they loved it so much.
We then had fun working out which flowers we wanted to buy to create our own floral arrangement. We looked at price, quality and quantity. It was great fun to see them working out which colours they thought would go together well. We came home and had some fun putting them together and I was impressed with their efforts. Go girls!
Below are some of their favourites:
