These flowers take little time and effort but provide big results, and tissue paper is easy for little hands to work with.
Tissue paper in an assortment of colors, floral wire or green pipe cleaners, scissors
Step 1: Draw and cut circles of tissue paper in various sizes and colors. The bigger the circles, the easier for kids to handle (think dinner plate size)
Step 2: Pinch centers of circles and twist to form short stems
Step 3: Insert bottoms of smaller circles into larger ones to create layers of petals
Step 4: Have an adult twist floral wire (or pipe cleaners) around base of flowers
Step 5: Fluff petals and arrange in vase
