Flower Arranging

Flower arranging is a traditional element of Montessori curriculum.  It dovetails well with some of our other activities around here, such as weekly Legion of Mary meetings (where fresh flowers are required) and weekly visits to residents at a nearby assisted living facility.

But how to transport the precious posies?  One workable solution is to save the 4-pack Starbucks Frappuccino packages.  (We buy these for long, cross-country drives and save the empties.)  The glass bottles look a little like the old-fashioned milk bottles (*love*) and the handle on the cardboard carrier is, well, handy.

Now for the gratuitous cute baby photo of Alleluia in a hat.
