Mother's Day Ideas Using Crepe Paper Streamers

I have many rolls of various colored crepe paper streamers. I would like to have my Sunday School class (grades 1-4) make something for Mother's day out of them. Perhaps someone has instructions on how to make flowers out of them? Any other ideas?

A windsock. Or you make it as a hanger.

Take a strip of the paper cut it about a foot long, take ribbon or pipe cleaner to make a hanger at the top and let the kids glue things on it - like stickers, flowers, fun foam shapes etc...

Making flowers out of crepe paper is easy. You can get long floral wires 25 or 50 to a pack at Wal Mart for about 2 to 3 dollars. Take your paper and cut it to about 20 inches and fold like a fan and then take the wire and wrap it around the middle and twist tightly all the way to the end of the wire.

Then take the paper and cut at each fold, to make each piece the same with and start pulling the paper at the closet to the center of wire to create a flower. Crepe paper will stretch so make the ends that stick up curly by stretching the ends as you pull up.

Or create roses by folding two triangles over each other and then gather paper and pinch and pull while rolling and either use wire or tape to hold. Practice with a piece and see what you come up with. you could use a safety pin on the back and surround some netting to make a pin.

Good luck,as Sunday is close
