Easy Kids Crafts – Paper Tulips

We love making and trying out different kids crafts in our house!

Today my 6 year daughter came home and started making little folded paper tulip flowers.

They had been making them at school and she remembered how to make them herself.

I thought they were super cute so I thought I would share them here.

 

Quick & Easy Kids Crafts

This is such a quick and easy craft to do with the kids with out making too much mess and they are made just from bits that you have lying around at home.

Child Making Tulips Made From Paper Squares And Bamboo Skewers

Instructions

All you need is square pieces of coloured paper, wooden skewers and some sticky tape.

First lay your paper flat and fold once from corner to corner, press the crease firmly down.

Then fold one of the corners up as shown below.

Repeat with the opposite corner

Your piece of paper should then look like this

Now you simply turn your paper over and on the back of the tulip attach a wooden skewer with some sticky tape.

At school the children had displayed them in up turned egg cartons that were painted green.

We didn’t have one to hand so we improvised a bit with an old clementine box in which we put some polystyrene and some decorative sisal grass.

Isabella then went on to make a beautiful job of decorating her crate with burlap and felt tips.

*You can also make cute mini versions of these using smaller squares of paper and tooth picks*

As I said before we love making crafts in our house and we are always busy with some sort of project or activity so we are always on the look out for new ideas.
