Draw the form of a girl and allow the kids to use fabric scraps, punched paper flowers, colored pens, wiggly eyes, rhinestones, and more to create this cute flower girl. This collage activity can be altered to to fit your needs and the materials you might already have. This page includes, instructions, a supplies list, and a download of the pattern needed to work on the project.
colored felt-tip pens: red; pink; maroon; dark green; light green; brown and neon yellow
quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
large petal palm punch from XCut, code XCU 261811
sponge - use one that was inside a medicine bottle
Cut a dress for the flower girl - a top from the cerise pink fabric; a skirt from the pink embroidered lace fabric and a frill from the pink cardstock. Glue all the pieces in place. (Depending on the girl's age, mom might need to help cutting out the clothes.)
Color the head, arms, and legs with the flesh colored pencil.
Use the maroon felt-tip pen to add detail to the frill, and to add a beaded necklace and bangle.
Glue the hair and wiggle eyes in place. Then, use the red and pink felt-tip pens to add a mouth and rosy cheeks.
Now add the sky - use the two colors of blue to sponge paint two thirds of the paper around the doll.
Use the dark green; light green; brown; and neon yellow felt-tip pens to add grass to the bottom third of the page.
Punch 7 flowers from the pink cardstock and glue them to the page. Do not glue them down completely, so that you can bend the petals of each flower slightly upward. Use the brown and maroon felt-tip pens to add detail to the flowers.
