An Easy Craft for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Elementary aged children!
Being at the beginning of March, we tend to get excited that spring is coming. It was actually unseasonably warm all winter (at least here in the Midwest), but now it’s getting to the warmer, wanna-be-outside-all-the-time temps. It reached the middle 70’s today and my kids kept asking if they could get the hose out to make a waterslide or if they could put water on the trampoline. I had to remind them, it’s still winter! I’m not ready to hook that hose up quite yet!
- Construction Paper in green and yellow
- Straws or Pipe Cleaners
- Pencil (for tracing child’s hand)
Start out by tracing your child’s hand on the piece of yellow paper (can choose other colors for the flower if you wish).
Cut Each hand out.
Once cut, wrap the ends of the fingers around a pencil to curl the ends, going out.
Once all the ends are twisted, wrap it around a straw and staple it, like this:
Then draw 2 leaves on the green paper and cut them out and staple them to your straw stem.
And you are done with one, very easy craft project!
Stick them in a vase for some very excited children. Spray them with perfume to give them a beautiful, flowery scent!
