ENID, Okla. —
Four girls — two pairs of sisters —spent Saturday afternoon in Turkey Creek Schoolhouse making daffodils from paper and felt.
The daffodil-making was part of Family Saturday at Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center.
Alexis Owens, a fifth-grader at Glenwood Elementary School, and her little sister, Haley, a second-grader, were there with their mother, Sarah Owens.
Cassidy Turnbow, a first-grader at Hayes Elementary School, and her little sister, Sloan, 4, also were making daffodils. Cassidy and Sloan are the daughters of Jason and Torry Turnbow. The youngest Turnbow daughter, 7-month-old Beth, who is too young to use scissors and glue, snoozed contentedly in her infant seat near the heat vent as the snow steadily fell outside.
The felt-and-paper daffodils will be strung together to festoon Turkey Creek School during the upcoming Frontier Festival, scheduled for May 17.
Cody Jolliff, education director, said the Frontier Festival will include a carnival, box lunch and social.
Dee Taylor, who portrays the school marm at the Turkey Creek School, was turned out in period costume Saturday. Taylor began her teaching career in a two-room school near Tahlequah. She retired 20 years ago.
