I'm not really a crafty person, but I'm learning to do more crafts with my babies. They love crafts! I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. Crafts float their boats and so I'm going to show you a spring flower craft we just did this week! It turned out super cute!
This is a pretty simple craft you can do with your kids as you study flowers this spring.
6 paper lunch bags per flower
a hole punch
1. Fold the bottom of each bag down and cut just above the bottom section. (You should have 6 bags with no bottoms now. )
2. Punch one hole in each bag in the center, about an inch from the bottom. *Make sure you line the holes up as much as possible. Depending on your hole punch, this is great for your preschooler to do as you help her place it where it needs to be.
3. Cut the bag at an angle from the side to the top, center and back down to the side. This creates the flower petal shape.
4. Place a piece of rolled-up tape on the right and left of the hole on each bag. Place the bags one on top of the other, making sure the holes line up, thus taping them together.
5. Tie a very loose string through the holes. Putting the string through the holes is good for your preschooler to do.
6. Pull your excess string up to the top of the petals and then fold your bottom bag face around to your top bag face, taping them. This will create the radial design of your flower. Work with it and adjust it as needed.
7. Your excess string should be at the top so you can hang it!
My girls loved the way their flowers turned out, but it was more fun just spending time together! I hope your babies enjoy making this craft with you as well.
