I’ve been wanting to make some daffodils since the start of Spring. They are such a lovely flower and the twins love to spot them when we are in the car. I like having them in the house but they never seem to last for long. I saw some small paper plates in the supermarket and thought they would be perfect.
To make the paper plate daffodils we used:
- small paper plates
- cardboard rolls
- pipe cleaners
- paint (yellow and orange)
- double sided sticky tape and sellotape
- green craft foam
- juice bottle
The girls had great fun painting the plates. We haven’t got the big paint out for a while and they spent most of the morning painting plates different colours. We got three yellow ones though so that was good. I might use the others for their Easter bonnets.
Charlotte also painted the tubes orange. Once they were painted she cut zig zag patterns on one end.
After I cut the petals out we stuck the pieces together using double sided tape.
We attached a green pipe cleaner for the stem. The twins loved cutting leaves out of green craft foam . This was a good activity for them as it didn’t matter if they were all different lengths.
The jar was made with an empty juice bottle. We wrapped a strip of felt around it and tied a bow with ribbon. We put the daffodils and leaves into the pot.
Origami Flowers is another fun craft to do with kids. Check out our post.
