What’s the perfect Mother’s Day gift? A heartfelt, handcrafted flower bouquet that she won’t have to water and will live on forever! This adorable and personalized craft turns little hands into big beautiful flowers. Make yours in just 6 easy steps!
- Green Construction Paper (8.5 x 11)
- White Paper (8.5 x 11)
- Green Straws
- Yellow Pipe Cleaners
- Scissors (adult assistance)
Get your paper out and trace those hands! Also don’t forget to hydrate with yummy Juicy Juice 100% Juice!
Keep tracing!! As many flowers as you’d like in your beautiful bouquet is the number of handprints you’ll need! Grab a sheet of green paper and make some oval leaf shapes as well.
Pro Tip: If your littles are too little to get a good trace of their hand, try using washable paint and touching it to the paper. Then set aside to dry before cutting out.
Adults, use your scissors to cut out all of your shapes. All of the hands and all of the leaves!
Now we’re going to make that yellow center part of your flower, also known as, the pistil. Put two yellow pipe cleaners together and curlycue them at one end with your finger. Then go ahead and feed them down the green straw.
Now let’s bring these flowers to life! Take your handprints and wrap them from pinky to thumb around the end of the green straw so your yellow pistil is just at the center. Glue the two sides of the paper together and onto the straw. Set aside to dry.
Next let’s glue the leaves to the length of the straw. Place them at any point along the straw then set aside to dry.
Gather all of your (now dry) flowers together to create your gorgeous flower bouquet! Feel free to tie a ribbon around the base or even place them in a vase.
