Spring is here and we are enjoying the blossoms in our backyard as a new one seems to pop up everyday!
My five-year-old daughter has been especially loving the Daffodils as they were one of the first to make an appearance. As we admired them, we decided to do a craft using the daffodils as an inspiration.
We made a fun “How-To” video and you can follow the steps either through the video or as typed below!
First a side-by-side comparison of our inspiration and the craft:
Inspired? So let’s start!
We used the main idea from the Garden Classroom book by Cathy James. But instead of making a bunting, as in the book, we made a bunch of flowers.
- Draw the shape of the daffodils on plain white card stock.
- Paint the flowers yellow and leave to dry.
- Cut the craters from egg cartons and paint orange. Leave to dry.
- Cut out the flower shapes.
- Now stick the craters to the centre of the daffodils.
- Tape the pipe cleaners to the back of the flowers.
And you’re done!
This was a fun spring craft. Let us know if you try it too!
