Flower Crafts for Kids
Whether you’re searching for ideas to keep your kids occupied at home this summer or need a fun project for your next kid’s birthday party, kids flower crafts are a great idea! Spring art projects are a great way to get your kids off their screens and having some creative fun.
And when it comes to creating spring and summer crafts, the sky’s the limit! You can create simple crafts for toddlers and preschoolers or more complicated projects for older kids. The one thing all these cool DIY projects have in common is a flower theme. And the best part is that you can create flowers out of just about anything!
These supplies are perfect for making some of these flower craft ideas with your kids:
- Coffee filters: Coffee filters make great flowers because you can easily fold and cut them to turn them into different shapes. And since they’re plain white, you can paint and draw on them to decorate your flowers.
- Cupcake wrappers: Like coffee filters, cupcake wrappers make great flower petals! Cut and shape them to turn them into pretty flowers.
- Paint: Decorate your flowers with the help of some paint. Or for less messy fun, try using crayons or markers to add some color to your flower crafts.
- Construction paper: Fold and cut colorful construction paper to use it in a variety of fun flower arts and crafts projects with your kids.
With so much to do, you better get scrolling! Keep reading to see all my favorite DIY flower crafts! And if you find one you like, make sure to click the link to get more information.
