Flowers, nothing says spring, more than a bunch of flowers! Here are ten different ways you can make flowers with your preschoolers this week – or maybe you can convince Grandma to make them with your kids – as your mother’s day gift! Don’t want to make your own flowers? Check out our sponsor for the week, Weekly Plus has a 60% off deal on flowers.
1 – Michele, of Michele Made Me, recycled egg cartons into works of art. These are simple and exquisite.
2 – Kim of A Girl and a Glue Gun, made some adorable flower rings from what appears to be flower shaped buttons. My girls would love these!
3 – Amanda from Funny Days made flowers out of toilet paper rolls with her tyke. I love how simple they are!
4 – Lisa of Simple Journey, a fellow Texan, made these newspaper flowers. They are stunning (even if fragile).
5 – Do you have a lot of pony beads? We do! Bethany, of My Kids Make, made these pony bead flowers with her daughters.
6 – Buckland, of Learning is Fun made some Poppy’s with paper and chopsticks! Beautiful.
7 – a Sewing site, Craft Stylish, has a flower that they made from a zipper. It is a “Sewing” craft but could probably be adapted for preschoolers.
8 – Becky of My Kids Make, created some fun spring flowers with her kids using scraps of yarn, cookie cutters, glue and lots of patience.
9 – Morgan, a science teacher, made these papercup flowers and blogged about them at Morgan Made It.
10 – …And lastly, the Quirky kids and I routinely make flower hair clips together. They love wearing them and I love making them.
