Crafts: Spring Flowers

Tissue paper, kids crafts, preschool

Looking to recycle some of that tissue paper you saved from gift bags? I can't be the only person who tries to fold it neatly to reuse for future presents or for crafts, can I?

Our children made these two beautiful flowers with tissue paper, construction paper, and glue.

Materials 
Steps 

1. Gather all your materials.

2. Draw your flower onto your paper. You can draw it like I did or let your children draw it themselves.

3. After choosing the colors for the project, tear the tissue paper into strips and small pieces. Then crumble it a bit before gluing it to the paper.

4. Fill in all the white spaces with tissue paper to create a beautiful flower. 

OR 

If your children prefer our daughter's picture, you can skip the crumbling step and just glue the pieces of tissue paper onto the drawing paper.

  1. Such a fun way to use up some tissue paper. We've made tissue paper flowers before but not like this! Cute. Thanks so much for linking up with us at the Virtual Refrigerator. Pinned.
