The spring weather is beautiful and so are the flowers.
We have been reading Flower Garden by Eve Bunting and making a literacy connection by creating beautiful flowers with cupcake papers!
- cupcake papers - we used large and small white ones
- construction paper – only used green
How to create the flowers:
- Paint the cupcake papers various spring like colors.
- You can speckle and stamp them too.
- Let them dry.
We made leaves by cutting various shapes from green construction paper.
Many different kinds of flowers can be created by cutting the edges of the papers and layer the different colors and sizes.
Cut triangles from the edge of the cupcake papers like this:
Scrunch up a little paper to make a bright center:
A flower that is blue and red with jagged edges.
Older kids can scallop the edges and layer the papers to create this little blossom:
Your imagination is the limit!
