Make a mini garden

We enjoyed making this mini garden today. The idea belongs to the popular Mr. Maker. It was published in a children's magazine.
Defne painted a paper plate green and we left it to dry.
Then we snipped out a pond shape from blue paper.
We used green card to cut out tree tops  and made tree trunks and a fence by painting a card brown.
We then scrunched some grey paper to make some rocks. We added a few flowers on the fence.
Finally we sticked eveything on the plate.
A lovely prop for imagination play!
