A Little Brown Bulb
A little brown bulb went to sleep in the ground.
There she slept very sound.
While Old King Winter raged and roared overhead,
The little brown bulb did not stir in her bed.
Then came Lady Spring tip-toeing over the lea,
Fingers to lips as soft as can be.
And the little brown bulb just lifted her head,
Slipped off her nightie and jumped out of bed.
I am having a hard time not anticipating the return of Spring! I'm eagerly awaiting the warmth, the songbirds, the longer days, dirty finger nails from being in the garden.......I dream of Spring! Today, we in NY are anticipating a snowfall *sigh* which is equally as exciting for the littles. To help get me through until Spring has officially sprung we'll be making these beautiful shamrock window transparencies. They are lovely to look at, the dimension in color, the shamrock frame. Our front door window will be decked out to welcome the 'luck of the Irish' and yours can be, too!
What you'll need::
Green card stock (2 pieces for each shamrock)
various sizes and colors of tissue paper
a larger piece of light colored tissue paper
|four times. This will take a bit of arranging but once you trace and begin cutting it will take shape!|
