This is another one of our easy crafts and is perfect for kids as young as three, with a little help from an older sibling or adult of course.
The kit comes with with wood shapes that can be arranged into any pattern, floral or not. I often encourage my student to think outside the box and not do the same thing that I showed them as the example. So if your child decides to arrange their wood shapes into something other than a flower, let them. Let them experiment.
Check out the DIY below.
Kit Supplies: 5 wooden hearts, 9 wooden ovals, 1 small wooden circle, 1 greeting card and envelope, glitter
Additional Supplies: paint brush, paint (you can also use markers, colored pencils, crayons, school glue (optional but useful if not using paint), painters tape, paper plate
First step is to get all the ovals and mini circle set on a plate. I use my trusty painters tape to help this next part. Tear off a small piece of painters tape and roll it on to itself to create something similar to double sided tape.
Place it on the back of the wood oval and secure them on a paper plate. Repeat with the other wood shapes, making sure to space them enough so that they are not touching each other.
Repeat until all the ovals are set on the paper plate.
Paint the ovals your preferred color making sure to paint the edges …
and while the paint is still wet, sprinkle the glitter on it. If using markers or other non paint coloring agent, brush the top of the wood shapes with school glue and then sprinkle with glitter before the glue dries.
Tape the small circle on the edge of the paper, paint it and sprinkle with glue. Set aside to dry.
Repeat the process for the hart shapes: taping to the paper plate, painting and then sprinkling with glitter. Set aside too dry.
Once the shapes are dry, wrap a dab of glue on the back side of the wood shape.
Then place it anywhere on your greeting card to create a flower or other pattern or design.
First flower done. Time to move onto the next flower.
Before moving onto the next step, isn’t this adobos?
Repeat the process for the sunflower
