A Kids Flower Craft Perfect for Spring!
Here’s a quick and easy Spring flower craft that makes beautiful blooms…
Kids Paint Chip Flower Craft
- paint chips in pretty colors
- pipe cleaners
Take a paint chip…a rectangle works best. Cut it in thin “fringes” most of the way down, so that it looks like a comb when you’re done.
Now roll it up tightly, white side out. Add a pipe cleaner to the bottom and twist tightly.
Flip it over and spread out the “petals.” Now make a bunch more!
You can experiment with cutting the paint chips in different ways, too, to make different flowers.

I love this simple flower craft from Erin. It would be fun for any Spring day or even as a simple gift for Mom or Grandma for Mother’s Day. Do you have a flower craft to share? Leave a link in the comments to show us!
