I don’t think I’m the only one that would wish for flowers to last forever, and not wilt. Unfortunately that’s not the case. One way to get around that is to make flowers. How? Well, all you need is craft clay that you can bake, in different colors to make flowers, and green floral tape and toothpicks or metal to put into the flowers so that you can wear them behind your ear. This program may cost between 20-30 dollars, and requires the use of an oven. Have the residents shape their flowers and bake them roughly 15-20 min. or until they are hardened enough that they won’t unshape. It’s a fun , community building program, and you get flowers that last to boot, without even having to see the Islands!
