MAKING FLOWER NECKLACE
Nermeen and her friend are always ready for a Nature walk.
It was a rainy day I was also excited so Nermeen called her friend, and she joined us near the Neighboring Park.
She started picking flowers which fell down on the ground and asked me if she could also pick from the plants.I told her, sometimes if we really wish to pick few, we can but not always.
They talked about their different colors, shades and shapes. They talked about the shades of pink and relating it to some other objects .
So we got few beautiful ones, and put them in the blue basket.
'I want to a make a Necklace, can I?" Nermeen asked me in a cute requesting tone. I liked her creative idea and we started making few Designer-made Jewelry.
They realized it needed a plastic wire or thread to create a necklace, Nermeen got it from her mom. I showed them how to thread a needle, they practiced until they got the mastery.
Now the question is how to arrange the flowers on the thread, they brainstormed and started matching the flowers with each other ,making patterns and analyzing different combinations. Finally they used the needle very carefully all by themselves.
They discovered that the necklace couldn't be fixed by themselve, so they helped each other
(I was a silent observer, noticing how they discover things, explore new ideas and solve problems without any adult interference)
Her friend helped her by making a neat knot at the end.
(estimating the length of a thread that is required to make a perfect knot, keeping in view the Locket size and its perfect length hanging from the neck)
Out of many Necklace they loved the Leaf Necklace
Leaf Necklace was special , it was decorated with small red pearls which has given it a perfect Designer touch.
