As a preschool Sunday School teacher, I had the children plant flowers to be good size by Mother's Day. To decorate our plastic margarine/butter/sour cream containers, I wanted to make them look like the floral shop plants.

For my mother last year I took a plain board (9x11 inches) and sanded it smooth. Then I let my children pick 3 different colored craft paints that matched. I primed the board and gave it a base coat of one of their color picks.

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?
