My Pre-K class is working on paper flowers for Mother’s Day.
I traced each kid’s hand 3 times and then cut them all out. If the child was able, he or she cut.
Then each kiddo colored the thumbs yellow. This will be the center of our flower.
I poked a pipe cleaner through the bottom portion of the palm and then rolled the thumb into the middle.
When the paper was wound tightly, I used the end piece of the pipe cleaner to wrap around the flower and keep it in place. This was a lot easier than using glue and holding it together for 5 minutes till dry:)
After that, we rolled each of the fingers down with a pencil.
Paper flower bouquet, anyone?
The kiddos are so proud:)
