Spring has sprung, and I’m really enjoying the flowers blooming in my neighborhood.
This simple spring flower craft is one of my favorites. Add it to your preschool spring ideas, because it’s easy to make and requires just a few supplies you’ve likely got in your stash already.
Not only does this craft allow kids to get excited about spring, but it also encourages them to strengthen hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Easy Flower Craft for Kids
I’ve featured quite a few flower crafts, but this may be the easiest one we’ve done yet.
There is no cutting involved. Just draw some stems, and glue on the muffin cup liners.
What You’ll Need
- Blue card stock paper
- Mini baking cups (variety of colors)
- Elmer’s clear glue
- Buttons (variety of colors)
- Green marker
What You’ll Do
Place your baking cups where desired on the cardstock. Leave room to make stems and leaves.
Pour a dot of glue on the back of each baking cup, and glue the baking cup securely in place on the cardstock.
Draw a stem and leaves on each flower with the green marker.
Pour a dot of glue on the center inside each baking cup.
Place a button down inside each baking cup and gently press down into the glue. Repeat this step for all flowers.
Set the project aside to dry. Once it’s dry, it’s ready to be put on display!
