Kid-friendly Craft with Paper Flowers & Pipe Cleaners
a simple DIY project for little hands ages 3 - 6 years old
MATERIALS:Any paper will do - recycled, printer paper, construction paper, etc.
Crayons, colored pencils, glitter or other embellishments (optional)
PIPE CLEANER PAPER FLOWER INSTRUCTIONS:These are really self-explanatory from the photo. You simply freehand cut flowers of all shapes and sizes from any paper you like. When I was cutting them, I would stack a few sheets of white printer paper together to cut several at once. Then my little girl would put them on the pipe cleaners. She cut some flowers of her own too. To make it easier to put on the pipe cleaner, cut a small slit or notch in the center of each paper flower. Then insert the pipe cleaner and twist it at the top so it will stay in place for the stem. The kids could also color their flowers or add glitter or rhinestones for embellishment.
The photo below shows one of my paper flower bouquets on a shelf in my living room. My daughter helped me fill it. The decorated tin can is a peak at one of my upcoming craft tutorials to be posted this month. It is part of a complete set of pretty upcycled cans.
