The color festival is still on! Celebrate the spring and pre-easter season with your kids. Develop their fine motor skills, and teach them colors.
My boy is learning the spring season and the yellow color at the nursery. I thought of DIY yellow paper flowers. Why not? It could be the table centerpiece at Easter. Lets have fun!
First we need a vase. Empty cheese jar was an excellent idea. We decorated it with colorful japanese washi tape.
The minute I set down the material on the table, Nady showed an unbelievable excitement.
You will be surprised how much you can do with just papers; Pinwheel daffodil, marigold, daisy, tulip and geranium, for this time.
Follow me step by step on how we do the pinwheel daffodil.
Daisy, tulip and geranium. Click on flowers cut outs for a high resolution file.
Green straws for the stems.
Simply gorgeous! Nady was so happy, contemplating the beauty of the flowers.
So excited, he started to collect the flowers to make a bouquet.
Nady’s reaction to this activity was unexpected. I was extremely happy from his response. Crafting today was extremely beautiful and fun. He grabbed the vase and started to fill it with the flowers.
Busy boy 🙂 So proud of himself.
