An Activity for School-Age:
These lovely flowers make for great springtime gifts.
Before You Begin:
Gather the following: tissue paper circles, extra-long craft rolls, construction paper, glue sticks, pipe cleaners and a stapler.
To create a process art project celebrating springtime!
These make great gifts for teachers or parents. Or, you may wish to create a classroom stand-up garden on a tabletop or window ledge.
Let's Get Started
Use a glue stick to adhere a sheet of construction paper to a paper towel roll.
Glue the pipe cleaner along the seam of the construction paper.
Fold each paper circle (up to 10 circles) in half, but only halfway across.
Arrange the circles together in the desired pattern and staple them into place.
Glue a pom-pom to the center of the flower.
Use glue, tape, hot glue or glue dots to affix the flower to the top of the craft roll.
Cut leaves from construction paper and glue them to the craft roll.
