April Showers Bring May Flowers, That is What They Say

A couple of months ago, I went on an arts and crafts supplies buying spree and came home with these little flower-shaped buttons. For what? I don't know, but they were cute and girly and right up our alley. While I was putzing around on Pinterest the other night, I came across a smiley-faced cotton ball rain cloud and thought,

April showers bring May flowers,
That is what they say.
But if all the showers turned to flowers,
We'd have quite a colorful day!

There'd be bluebells and cockleshells,
Tulips red and green,
Daffodils and Chinese squill,
The brightest you've ever seen.

You'd see tiger lilies and water lilies,
Carnations pink and blue,
Forget-me-not and small sundrop,
Glistening with the dew.

We'd have fireweed and milkweed
And many more different flowers.
Mexican star and shooting star,
Falling in the showers.

And if all the showers turned to flowers
On that rainy April day,
Would all the flowers turn to showers
In the sunny month of May?

Well, okay, maybe just the first stanza and then, "Yes! The buttons!"

Here's what you'll need:

Construction paper

Cotton balls
Googly eyes
Green crayon, for the grass
Flower-shaped buttons (Of course, you could use flower-shaped stickers or more construction paper; whatever works!)

Have fun! :-D
