3. Paper Hyacinths
Children can learn how to make paper loops by making these lovely paper hyacinths.

4. Mix and Match Flower Craft
What could be sweeter than your child’s face in the center of a pretty flower? Kids will have a blast making these mix-and-match flowers. Swap out the flower petals or leaves. Choose between a vase, a flowerpot, or no container at all.
The best thing of all is adding their photos to the flowers. Add magnetic tape to the back to turn them into cute magnets for the fridge.
This is one of our favorite spring flower crafts for teachers or parents.
5. Kindness Flowers
We could all use a little more kindness in the world. Encourage kids to make one of these kindness flowers to give to a friend. It could really lift someone’s spirit!
Print a kind word that describes the recipient on each flower petal. Then, watch for the big beaming smile when you pass it along. 🙂
This is a terrific activity for schools, scout activities, or summer camps.

Make several flowers in different colors to create a lovely bouquet.
