Spring Flowers

Now the weather is improving at last, we have been enjoying getting outside! It's been a long, wet winter and at last, Spring is on the way. With all the blossom appearing on the trees and the daffodils popping up we thought it would be fun to try and make some flowers of our own.

There are many templates and suggestions on the web, we fancied something a little different. There is a lovely blog full of crafts and activities with free downloads called "Aunt Annie". We found just what we needed here!

You need:-

  • A printer! and some stiff paper
  • Flower colour felt tip pens
  • Scissors
  • glue or tape
  • a thin straw (optional)

First we downloaded the template pages, and printed them off.


Then we select our colours and coloured the templates in.
NOTE thicker paper works best and you need to colour both sides in!





Then you carefully cut out all the parts and follow the instructions.

It was quite straitforward to put together. We opted to wrap a thin straw inside the stem to make a rounder and stronger support for our flowers.


Our daffodil!
