Crafting with kids: Spring Flowers

Spring is just around the corner.

Here is a beautiful bouquet of straws flowers you can make with your kids.

Flower Straws

Items needed:

  • Bendy straws
  • Flower cookie cutter or stencil
  • Assorted scrapbook paper – preferably card stock (this is a great way to use up scraps)
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
    To make:

Trace around the stencil or cookie cutter with a pencil

Flower Stencil

Cut out the flower shape and cut out some smaller circles too – trace around a tiny glass on plain card stock (we used circles from Martha Stewarts Playground Multimedia Pad).

Next, glue the center spot onto the flower, then a grown-up will need to punch a hole through the center of the flower. Then have your child very gently push the straw from the bottom up through the flower until it is at the top of the bendy part. Bend the straw and the flower will stay there.

Now get them a special drink to try out their fabulous fancy spring straws.
