mother's day paper bouquet

This project is intended for kids ages 5+.

Step 1

Trace your hand onto watercolour paper. Repeat this two more times to make three flowers.

Step 2

Watercolour paint each handprint and let dry.

Step 3

Cut out each handprint, then roll each one to create a flower.
TIP: The watercolour paper is a bit stiff, which makes a nice flower but might be hard to roll. To make rolling it a little easier, first lay it along the edge of the table and pull it along the edge. This will help break up the fibres in the paper and help it to curl.

Step 4

ADULT: Hot glue a green chenille pipe cleaner to each flower to make a stem.

Step 5

Cut a chenille pipe cleaner to bend and make a leaf. Twist the leaf onto the stem.

Step 6

Finally, cut a piece of brown construction paper to a square 9" x 9" [22.9 cm x 22.9 cm]. Lay it on your table with a point up so it looks like a diamond shape. Gather your bouquet and and lay it onto the brown paper and wrap the paper around the bouquet. Tie with a piece of jute.
TIP: Make a little tag from either watercolour paper or construction paper to tie onto the string around the bouquet.
