These flowers make great embellishments on cards for either valentines day or mothers day!
Start by setting out tray with various crepe paper / tissue papers. I added buttons to mine as well. Each child got a sheet of stock card to glue and create on.
To start out with we made glue spirals. Here we started crumpling up the the crepe paper to make some petals. My 2 year old loved the buttons so much her flower consisted of almost all buttons!
I was rather proud of my 5 year old for making a “perfect” flower!
Don’t you just love the creative process!
Gorgeous right? We made an entire bouquet to put on our card.
