When the center first opened, many children spent time at the art center creating their own flowers to be sold or used as decoration.
Others used the fabric flowers we had available to create their own creative arrangements.
A few children drew pictures of the choices of arrangements that were available to customers.
Some flowers needed to be tended; watering them in large bunches was a favourite activity.

Using the calculator to total orders was also a favourite activity for many!
