Handprint Flowers

A quick craft that kids will love.

Approximate Time: 10 minutes

Supplies:

  • straw
  • scraps of paper
  • pencil
  • florist tape
  • chenille
  • scissors
  • one child
  • Scotch tape

Instructions:

  1. Draw around your child's hand including the wrist with the fingers spread out.
  2. Then starting with the thumb wrap the hand around a straw, piece of 1/4 inch dowel, or pencil. When the little finger is brought just past the thumb tape your spiral so it holds. It should be a tighter spiral around the wrist than the end of the fingers.
  3. Now take another pencil and roll the fingers back or outward to form the petals of your flower. Wrap the bottom of the flower to your stem with florist tape.
  4. Cut a piece of chenille 6 inches long, bend in half, curl the ends, glue in the center of your flowers for the stamen.
