To begin, create create a flower shaped canvas.
Using a paper plate, simply fold it in half and cut out triangular shapes around the rim.
Open the paper plate up and begin sticking!
Offer your crafty kid lots of colourfulTissue Paper and a pot of glue.
Explain that the idea of the activity is to tear off smaller segments of tissue paper, scrunch it up into a tiny ball and then stick.
My preschooler decided to cover her paper plate in PVA glue first and while I knew that areas of the paper plate were likely to dry out, it’s important for kids to discover these small lessons for themselves and of course the glue can simply be reapplied.
Next sit back and let the kids to the work!
I say sit back, I couldn’t help but get in on the action along with my preschooler and 6 year old.
And that’s it!
Your crafty kiddies should now have a gorgeous Spring paper plate flower!
