Materials

  • Colored construction paper
  • Black marker
  • Child's blunt-tip safety scissors
  • Tissue paper in a variety of colors
  • White glue or glue stick (non-toxic)
  • Strips of stiff cardboard, 1 to 2 inches wide by 6 to 8 inches long
  • Green garden tape
  • Stapler

Instructions

  • Draw large flower shapes on several different colors of construction paper.
  • Cut the tissue paper into 3-inch squares. Cut several layers at a time to make lots of different colored squares.
  • Let the kids cut out the flowers (assist them if they need help.)
  • Have them wrap the cardboard strips with the green garden tape to make a stem.
  • Staple the cut-out flower to the stem. Be sure to perform this step yourself if you're not confident the children can safely use the stapler.
  • Show the kids how to decorate their flowers using tissue paper. Set a square of tissue paper on the table and have them use all their fingers to pinch the paper into a wad.
  • Have them glue the wads onto the paper any way they want.
  • When the flower is covered with tissue paper, hold up the flowers and show them to one another.
