Flower and Petals
I made a flower out of construction paper. Each petal was about 2 inches wide and 4 inches tall. I also had a stem that held all the petals. It was just stuck on with a touch of glue stick glue. The glue tore off easy and clean. Then in between the two primaries, I re-glued the petals to the stem.
I love to create out of construction paper. I tried to make it as large as possible. I created it out of two sides of red papers. Then used some green to line the bottom of the red. I made the seeds as large as I could without them looking ridiculous for the watermelon. They were about an inch wide. Each seed had a magnate and a number on the back. I put some magnates on the back of the watermelon too.
The string was looped all the way around the board, pull the string down on the back, the balloons rise on the front. Really simple to make. I created a background on my board with construction paper, but you really don’t have to. Also you don’t have to make cut out balloons, anything that goes up: balloons, birds, clouds, airplane.
