Crafts for Kids: Spring Flowers
Spring is just around the corner. I know it doesn't feel like it for some of you though with the seemingly never-ending snow. You can still get into the Spring spirit with the kids though with this fun indoor flower craft.
I came home late from an appointment with my son one afternoon last week and my daughter had gotten a little crafty while I was gone and handed me a small bouquet of flowers that she had made for me. Later that week she made more of them and now has them displayed in a lovely vase on the bedside table.
SPRING FLOWER CRAFT FOR KIDS
TIP: We were able to find everything we needed at our local dollar store. If you already have scissors, your total cost for this project is around $2.
- Using a pair of scissors cut the pipe cleaners to lengths of about 3-4 inches (depending on the size you would like the flower petals).
- Curve the center of each pipe cleaner and stick each end into the foam ball.
- Repeat until you have pretty colored petals around the entire ball.
- Create small flower buds but winding a colored pipe cleaner around one end of a green one.
You can attach the flower buds to flowers by winding the stem of each together (see picture below).
And there you have it, a lovely bouquet of pretty Spring flowers.
