For our 10 min #LoveSpelledTime monthly craft habit, www.momjunction.com teaches us how to make paper flower bouquets with our little ones.
A bouquet for kids may seem like a stretch. But these paper flower making for younger kids is easy to do, with a little help from the adults.
You Will Need:
- Drinking straws for stems
- Craft paper of different colors – purple, blue and pink (other colors if you’d like)
- Slit one end of the straw and flatten it so that it looks like a flower with a stem. Let the slits be an inch long, but not more.
- To make it easier for preschoolers, get templates of flowers in different sizes, printed on the color paper. Pick easy templates that the kids can cut using their scissors.
- Cut the flowers into sets, based on their shapes.
- Arrange the flowers by stacking them according to their size, with the wider or larger blossom at the bottom.
- Use the scissors to create a small circle/hole in the center of the flowers.
- Put the non-slit end of the straw from the top, into the circle in the middle and tape it from the below to hold the petals in place. Credits: www.momjuction.com
