These flowers are a simple
and fun craft that can be done by both toddlers and preschoolers.
Toddlers will need a little bit of extra help, but they'll be proud as
punch to have these flowers displayed on the kitchen table!
Have kids cut out different shapes from construction paper: circles, squares and triangles will all work well! Help younger kids cut out the shapes - this is a great time for your kids to practice shape identification.
The next step is to thread a pipe cleaner through the middle of each shape.
Curl a loop at the end of the pipe cleaner to form the flower's middle, or pistil. Try using a few shapes per flower, or different shapes, or even just one shape. It's up to your child!
Display the flowers in a pretty vase and set them on the table or counter - anywhere your family can see them. Related crafts on momstown:Bird watching binoculars P is for Petal
