We have started our unit on pollination, flowers and bats this week. Here is a little craft we made to go along with our unit study. This would be a great Mothers Day gift (so dads gather the kids and get out the craft supplies before Sunday).
-Empty toilet-paper tube
-2 - Green Popsicle Sticks
-Rose Art Tempura Painters (these are by far my favorite Rose Art product)
-Green paper for leaves
-Paint and Paintbrush if you don't have Tempura Painters
- Draw a ring 2 inches from the edge of tube. Repeat on other end. Then draw lines every 1/2 inch for kids to cut. My kids didn't do a very good job of using the lines. Snip along each line to make petals. Fold petals back to create flower.
- Paint flower and let it dry. The tempura painters were great for this craft and Gwyn had a fun time creating a pretty pattern.
- Glue two green popsicle sticks together then push them through the one end of the flowers center until it touches the other end. I added a little bit of hot glue to make sure it stayed secure.
- Have the kids pick out their favorite color pom pom and glue it to the popsicle stick in the center of the flower.
*Disclaimer - Rose Art supplies from Mega Brand supplies us with lots of wonderful products in return for honest review and craft project how to's. I was not compensated for my review and all opinions are our own! Many of the links found on my side bars and in my blog posts are affiliate links. As a result, I might get paid money and I will most likely spend the money on homeschool supplies.
