Design and make your own flowers out of construction paper. Here is a craft idea to get you started!
For these easy construction paper flowers you can reuse scrap paper. Materials
- construction paper
To make daises, start by gluing a small circle of paper to the main piece of construction paper. Place larger pieces of paper around the small circle to make pedals. Round off the edges of the paper pieces to look more like flower pedals and glue to the background.
To make tulips, cut half ovals and circles and place the flat side up. Add a stem and some leaves using green construction paper. For other flowers – any shape or combination of shapes will resemble a flower when you simply add a stem using a long green strip of construction paper.
To make a leaf, glue a short little green piece of construction paper to the stem.
To make a butterfly, use 2 larger pieces for the top wings and two smaller pieces for the bottom half. Then glue small colored pieces of paper symmetrically onto the wings.
Cut a circle out of yellow or orange construction paper to make a sun.
For the grass, cut a strip of green construction paper and snip it along the edges.
