While we were visiting the Nature Center last week, we saw these paper flowers in the gift shop. The ladies who worked there made them for decorations. My Princess and I loved it. I knew we could do this for craft time this week. We only needed a few simple products to make a Simple Paper Flower.
- Construction Paper
- Glue Stick
I drew a flower shape on construction paper. My Princess cut in out. We then took a complimentary color of construction paper. I cut the desired length and my Princess rolled it and glued the ends together. I actually made the cuts in the bottom of the paper that was rolled so they would be somewhat uniform. Then those cuts got more glue and we put them down in the center of our flower.
You can even put a green pipe cleaner through the center for a stem.
We made a few and had a great time. These flowers would look cute on your Mother’s Day breakfast or brunch table. They are easily made by your children and they are fun and pretty.

So adorable and I know the kids enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Sheila. I wish I had brought my nicer camera with us to Arkansas. The pictures are not as nice as I normally like to post. But we did have fun!

very cute, and so easy! I think this would be great for kids to learn to use scissors too.
My daughter is 5 and does well with scissors. She does like me to help her though at times. We love doing paper crafts together.
These are adorable. Perfect for my kindergartener who loves flowers and crafts.
Those are so lovely! Posts like yours only make me even more excited for when Michael is old enough!
We love doing paper crafts together. 5 is a fun age. I imagine as she gets older we will continue to love doing things like this together.
This is such a sweet craft project and I have everything we need to make these flowers!
