Spring Crafts for Kids: Paper flowers you can make at home


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

How to

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
