This Bubble Wrap Sunflower Craft is a lovely, recycled craft idea for Fall.
- White card stock
- Washable kids paint (green, black, yellow)
- Bubble wrap
- Craft scissors
- Paper plate
- Place green, yellow and black washable kids paint onto a paper plate.
- Cut out a small circle out of the bubble wrap using the craft scissors (about 2″ in diameter).
- Next, paint the bubble wrap circle using the black paint and stamp onto the upper portion of the white card stock, remove the bubble wrap. This will be the middle of the sunflower.
- Now, using the yellow paint, paint the flower petals using a outward swipe motion with a paintbrush, going around the black sunflower middle.
- Lastly, using the green paint, draw a stem and leaves. Let dry.
This Tissue Paper Lilac Craft is a simple craft idea using tissue paper.
- Cut the tissue paper into squares, approximately 2″ x 2″. Place into a bowl.
- Using the pencil, make a simple outline of a few branches for the lilacs. This step helps younger kids to visualize where to glue the tissue paper.
To make the lilac:
- Take a piece of the purple/lavender tissue paper, crunch it up just a bit and glue to the white card stock following the outline.
- When you have glued all of your tissue paper, cut out leaves from the green tissue paper and glue on top and between the purple tissue paper to create a bush (you can prep this step before hand).
This beautiful Fingerprint Lupine Craft uses an easy technique of finger painting kids will love!
- Prep the finger paint (if you need to) by placing a little bit of purple and pink paint onto a plate.
- First, using the paintbrush and green watercolors, draw a few long stems and leaves for the lupines.
- Next, using the finger paint, make fingerprints with purple/pink paint starting at the top and going half way to the bottom of the stem. Make sure you stamp wider towards the bottom of the flower and narrower at the top. Let dry.
TIP- we found it to be beautiful if the purples and pinks combined a little bit on the finger. This creates a beautiful two tones lupine!
This Button Flower Craft is a simple and creative way to use buttons! Kids will love picking and choosing the colors of the buttons, coming up with their own unique button flower garden!
- Card stock (light blue and green)
- Assorted buttons
- Liquid school glue
- Paper plate
- Craft scissors
- Green permanent marker (crayon or colored pencil)
- Begin by drawing out simple grass outline on the green card stock using a pencil, holding the paper horizontally. Cut out the grass.
- Draw stems for the flowers using a green permanent marker on the blue card stock. Alternatively, you can use a green crayon or colored pencil.
- Next, glue the grass to the light blue paper, horizontally.
- Now, place a little bit of the liquid school glue onto the paper plate and arrange the q-tips. This avoids little ones dealing with the squeezable glue bottles, which can be tough for little hands to handle.
- Glue the assorted buttons to make flowers.
This Flower Petal Art is an easy craft idea that uses flower petals to combine sensories and creativity!
- Using the craft knife and mat, cut a rectangle out of your cardboard. Make it big enough to have plenty of room for kids art.
- Once the cardboard is cut, draw flower stems and centers using the crayons. I drew 5 stems, but you can draw as many as you can fit, leaving about an 1.5″ in between the stems.
- Place the petals into a bowl and set besides the cardboard along with a glue stick.
Once you’ve done the prep, let the kids glue on the petals to the stems. You’ll be surprised at how busy and concentrated they stay!
Make this super fun and easy Paper Roll Flower Craft using paper rolls! It’s really easy to set up and super inexpensive because you’re using recycled materials.
- Using the craft scissors, cut slits in one paper roll, about .5″-1″ deep and spaced at 1/3 of an inch.
- Cut out triangles in the other and slits spaced at .5″ in the other. They don’t have to be perfect.
- Place desired washable kids paint on a paper plate and you’re ready to paint away!
Dip the paper rolls into the paint, making sure to get all of the slits coated and stamp onto the white cardstock. Once the flowers are stamped, we used a paintbrush to color in the middles orange and draw in the stems and leaves with green paint.
In this Sponge Painted Sunflower Craft kids are using sponges to paint! It’s super quick to prep, short list of materials needed and easy enough for even the toddlers to do! Kids will have a blast painting with sponges! It’s unique, fun and adds a beautiful texture to the sunflower.
- Start by cutting slits into the paper plate all around. This step can be done by the parent ahead of time.
- Next, place a large amount of each paint color onto a paper plate.
- Cut the sponge into long strips (easier to hold!) and set beside the paint.
- Paint the petals yellow and the middle black by stamping the sponge into the paint and then onto the paper plate. Add a bit of orange too, to make a realistic sunflower!
- After the sunflower has dried a bit, cut a long thick strip of green cardstock and glue to the back of the sunflower to create a stem.
This Tissue Paper Peony Craft is simple enough for toddlers to make yet looks fancy, beautiful and unique!
- We are the Gardeners by Joanna Gaines
- Begin by folding the tissue paper to get at least 4 layers.
- Using a pencil, trace the lid onto the tissue paper and cut out.
- Poke the pipecleaner through the pieces of tissue paper all at once to thread and then poke again to thread back. If you have a lot of tissue paper layers, you might need to carefully use the scissors (or a skewer) to make two holes and then thread the pipecleaner through.
- Next, line up the ends of the pipecleaner and twist them between each other to make a stem for the flowers.
- Lastly, pick up the top layer of the tissue paper and scrunch it up gently. Repeat with the rest of the tissue paper layers to make a nice, full-looking flower.
- Repeat the steps to make more flowers, using different tissue paper color!
Mother’s Day is coming up and this Mother’s Day Dandelion Card Craft is a wonderful way to tell them how much you love them!
- Cardstock (yellow)
- Washable kids paint
- Craft scissors
- Permanent marker
- Fine point permanent marker
- Begin by folding the yellow cardstock in half and trim to make a card (my cardstock sheet was square so I trimmed it a bit).
- Using the permanent marker draw a stem for the dandelion and a middle.
- Next, using the fine point permanent marker, draw dandelion lines all around the middle.
- Place a bit of desired paint onto a plate and use the q-tips to paint the ends of the dandelion lines. Alternating between several colors makes these dandelions sweet and unique!
