Colourful Flower

Another play date at my place and the need for another craft activity arose.

Just to use up the colour paper and foam sheets, I decided to make a colourful flower with multiple layers.

What I used:

  • Colour paper (assorted)
  • Foam sheets (assorted)
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Glue
  • A pair of scissors
  • A Pencil

Initially, I cut a small five-petal flower on a foam sheet.  Then, each flower was made a little bigger than the previous one.  A small yellow circle for the centre, a popsicle stick for the stem and two leaves from a green sheet of paper.  Everything in two sets – one for my daughter and the other for her friend.

The biggest of the flowers for the outermost layer.

The following three sizes.

The last two and the circle for the centre along with leaves and the popsicle stick stem.

Glue, pencil and a pair of scissors.

The layers have been arranged one on top of the other, from the largest to the smallest, with the stem at the bottom and the two leaves on it.

This is the flower which my daughter did.  She had it aligned in a different way than what I had in mind.

It took about 15 minutes for cutting them to shape and another 20 minutes for the kids to do it.
