Spring is here and we are having some lovely weather today! Our flowers have started to bloom outside and this year, our toddler is really into smelling them. We decided to bring that interest inside with this tissue paper flower craft.
- White Paper
- Tissue Paper (We used green and pink cut into little pieces)
- A Pen
If your tissue paper is already cut, start by drawing a large flower on a piece of white paper. We keep bags of pre-cut tissue paper in our craft bin to keep prep time simple. If it is not already cut, then you’ll also need to cut out small squares of tissue paper before your little one can get started.
Once your flower is drawn, cover it with liquid glue. This is an activity that a glue stick really would not work as well for. We create most of our crafts and learning activities with our two year old in mind, but if you have a child that is in elementary school and you’d like to make this an interesting craft for them, they could draw the flower and run the glue bottle all on their own. Once the glue is on, let your little one put the tissue paper onto the flower shape on color at a time.
This craft is a bit more guided than most we post on our blog, but the end result is so cute!
