Spring Flower Crafts for Kids { Florist in the Twin Cities }

We love these blogs–these blogs full of flowery craft projects that you can do right at home! We always come across great ideas and we get excited to share them with you. Sometimes, we center all of the ideas around a holiday, like Mother’s Day; and other times we focus more on one subject, like how to make some adorable vases. Since spring is here, we thought we’d focus this blog on flower crafts that the kids can do. Maybe you’re looking to decorate your windows, a wall, or send something cute off to the grandparents–we probably have an idea here for you. We try to keep the projects simple enough, and the materials basic enough, that even toddlers can create (maybe with just a bit of extra help from you).

Anyway…check out our favorite, springy, flower, craft ideas! As always, if you create any (these, or others), and want to show them off–post ’em over on our FB wall, or send us an email (customerservice@mainfloral.net), we love to see what YOU create!

Dandelions

The first flowers your children will probably ever give you…and that, in itself, makes them so much more than just a little yard weed. They’re little pieces of golden love that are handed to you by dirty, chubby, little hands. (That die in, like, a few hours. 🙂 ) ((Not the kids, the flowers. Yeesh. We needed to clear that one up, immediately.)) This project plays with lines, and textures, by using a fork to paint. (Grass works great too with the fork!)

Celery Stamping

Forget all those fancy stampin’ parties and stuff–just chop the end off your celery (you weren’t gonna use it anyway), and give it to the kids to use for flowers–they’re the perfect size for little hands to really get a good grip on!  Our only tip is to make sure to cut it off as evenly as possible to get the best design possible.

Yes. This is from Valentine’s Day. We had the photo already, so we went with it.

Noodle Sunflowers

Another foodie flower here! They say to paint the noodles with a brush, but, in our laziness that sounds like too much work. We bet if you put a blob of [washable] paint, and a bunch of noodles in a Ziploc bag, and then let the kids shake ’em up like crazy–you’d get a great result. (We take no responsibility if that idea doesn’t work out as perfectly as it did in our heads, and your kids end up yellow. 😉 )

Cherry Blossom, Bubble Wrap Trees

So…not trying to take anything away from this blogger, but, we’re gonna go out on a limb here (pun intended, because puns are awesome), and say that you probably do not need to download the ‘tree’; it’s pretty easy to draw a tree. (If you need to though, no judgement from us. Probably. 😉 ) We were feeling a little extra creative, so we did the stamping first, and then we used a few sticks from the yard, and a little glue, to create our tree. We also added tiny pieces of tissue paper to the sticks to give it more of a three dimensional effect.

Egg Carton Flowers

Since we’re all about the reusing in this blog, and since the passing of Easter may have left you with extra egg cartons, we think this project is perfect. (Also, egg cartons are a great thing to plant seeds in. They grow and you don’t even have to take the seedling out. Just cut the bottom a bit, and put the whole thing in dirt.)

Bottle Cap Hyacinths

Use the top of the bottle for this, and the bottom for the next project. These are perfect right now, since Hyacinth’s are an early spring flower, and, well, it’s early spring. You could also draw/paint the stem–if you don’t want to cut it out. Also…you could use a darker paper, if you want to make white flowers!

Bottle Print Flowers

Now, flip the bottle over from the last project and stamp away! (Wow, we have a lot of stampin’ projects in this blog, huh!?) We love the dual color look that this blogger has going on–grab a couple bottles, and do a couple, different, color combos for a rainbow garden!
