These simple construction paper flowers are easily crafted by little fingers.  Kids of all ages can make this craft — younger kids may need additional help and supervision.  Older kids will likely run with the idea and make something that is much grander than what we show below.

I would expect that most of the supplies you already have at home or in the classroom so the cost is minimal and making a flower or two would take about 15 minutes while making an entire bouquet for mom might be closer to 25 minutes for most kids.
