Paper Flower Bouquet

This is a fun and cute little project for kids.  It would be perfect for Mother's Day (hint to those dad's out there!!).  All you need is some flower colored construction paper, a pencil, some craft sticks (we painted our's green), glue, scissors and a stapler.

Trace your child's hand print on the paper and cut it out

Curl the ends of the finger tips around a pencil

Glue the craft stick to the hand print

Take the sides and shape them around the stick and staple it together

Nathan and I took a vase and put some tissue paper in the bottom of it.  Then arranged the "flowers" in the vase.

I think I like these flowers just as much as I like my real ones!

And Nathan is pretty darn proud of himself, as you can see!

Here is his little garden stone project, he finished it yesterday......
