Simple Spring Art For Kids

This is a great art activity for a number of reasons. First of all it is open-ended, this means children can take from it and create whatever they like, there is no perfect example to match, it is up to them. Second, cutting and pasting is great for practicing fine motor skills.

So, here is the craft: INVITATION TO CREATE FLOWERS

Instructions

  • You will need a variety of colours of construction paper
  • You will want to cut these papers into a number of shapes prior to giving them to your child. (you can cut them with your child which is good for fine motor but may take away slightly from the open-ended aspect of the activity, it is a trade off and your choice)
  • Make the following shapes in a variety of sizes
    • Long, skinny rectangles (stems)
    • Triangles (petals or leaves)
    • Circles and ovals (petals)
    • Leaf shapes (leaves)
    • Quarter sheets (backgrounds)
  • Place the paper pieces and a glue stick on a tray (sorted or unsorted) and let your child create flowers using the pieces however they like!
