Flower Art

My son brought home the most adorable flower from kindergarten yesterday, I just had to share it with everyone.

You will need:

strips of paper about 3 inches wide
glue

For starters, let me tell you that I used a glue stick. You might want to try a stronger glue, or hold the pieces together with a clothespin until the glue dries. I thought glue dots would probably hold well.

Cut the construction paper into the strips. Allow the children to decide what color petals and what color center they would like. I had 6 petals, 1 center, 1 stem, and two leaves; I needed 10 strips of paper. Have them make cylinders with the petal colors and with the center color. Next have them fold the leaves in half and glue together at the bottom.


















The final step is to glue all the pieces together. I glued the stem to the center first. I then glued the petals and finished up with the leaves. I really think this is an adorable flower--lots of "character."
