Cherub was very happy to return to preschool this week, although I could have sent her last week, but silly Mummy didn't realise they were open! Oh well, she's enjoying being back with her friends this week, as is Popette who has formed a 'Spy Club' with a small group of friends. And seeming happy :)
Over the holidays we made some flowers out of paper plates which I thought I'd share on the blog, as they are so colourful and would make a lovely craft gift for the Mums and Grandmothers' on Mother's day.
All you need is:
Paints, water and paintbrushes
Stickers, sparkles, glitter for decorations
Pipe cleaners for a stem
To make a flower first draw a flower shape on a paper plate. It can have as many or as little petals as you like.
If you want to be like Cherub you could make a single flower, which she then just painted (she was happy with it even though its unfinished, I just wanted her to keep painting it!)
Popette decided that she wanted to have a flower with three layers. So after cutting the first flower, we made two more flowers which were cut smaller than the previous one, and had different petal shapes to make it look like an open flower.
I think her colours are beautiful!
Popette finished her flower by adding some butterfly stickers! You could add a green pipecleaner to the back, so it looks like a stem, or glitter to add some sparkle!
Suitable age group: 2+ yrs (littlies may need a hand cutting out the flowers)
Estimated setup time: 5-10 mins
Messiness factor: medium
