Kolleen at Instructables has a flower that they made from a zipper. It is a “Sewing” craft but could probably be adapted for preschoolers by using glue instead or wrapping string through the base to keep it together. These zipper roses are absolutely stunning though!

Mindy from Homesteadin Mama , created some fun spring flowers with her kids using scraps of yarn, a fork, and some scissors, as well as a pipe cleaner.
