Spring Paper Flowers

This week’s theme is… Spring!
We made awesome flowers from recycled items, with toddlers and preschoolers.

We used:
– Discarded books (circles cutout from pages)
– Egg carton cups
– Pipe cleaners
– Tissue paper (cut in circles)
– Markers

Children were given a book page cut in a the shape of a circle. I asked them to color the page, to draw designs on it. Meanwhile, parents were given a pair of scissors to cut the tissue paper circles in a flower shape. I showed parents, different ways tthey could cut petals. Once they were ready with the flower parts, I gave each child an egg carton cup and a pipe cleaner. Parents and children pierced the pieces of paper on the pipe cleaner and pushed it into the cup. Resulting in a pretty paper flower
