Creation Story ~ God Gives Us Land (Fun Foam Plant Pokes)

The creator of Fun Foam is a pure genius because it is one of the best craft materials for small children (in my humble opinion)  You can find Fun Foam in the craft section is a variety of colors and designs.  Its color doesn't fade and it's easy to cut, glue and make cute little projects with.   Perfect for little hands to manipulate.
Since I have a class of boys and girls I had both flowers and sport balls for the children to choose from to make their plant poke. Of course, all of the girls chose the flowers and most all of the boys chose the sports ball.  So funny!
When planning a craft project for my students I've found it helpful to have everything ready to go where they only have to do up to 2 more steps during class.  
Last night I decided to add a cute smiley face to the center of the flower and my Peachy Keen faces were the perfect choice.  To ensure it wouldn't smear if it gets wet I used Black Staz On ink.  I stamped the faces onto fun foam and then used my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter to cut out the faces.  
The fun foam is too think for a circle punch. :(  
I had everything ready to go where all the children had to do was pick 2 flowers or balls for their plant poke.  
I gave them each a paper pennant to color and cut out for their stick.

Here are other crafty ideas I did with my students:
