Kids love to receive gifts, but they also can't resist the excitement and anticipation that comes with giving gifts to others, especially at Christmas time. When kids have an opportunity to create something homemade, the gift-giving becomes even more special.

I'm excited to be sharing this activity with other kid bloggers at the Kid-Made Christmas Series over at Teach Me Mommy .

These beautiful bouquets are simple for kids to make. And the hands-on activity promotes fine motor practice and supports kids creativity.

Family members will be proud to wear the pretty corsages to a festive gathering at Christmas time, or to a birthday or anniversary celebration any time of year.

The flower arrangements can also be placed in small vases to decorate the home or classroom.

 

Supplies for a corsage craft

 

Supplies for Christmas corsage kid made gift

 

  • artificial flowers
  • tape
  • ribbon

Artificial flowers are ideal for crafts because they're colorful and sturdy, and offer unlimited creative options.

The tape can be duct tape or masking tape, with a 1/2 inch to 1 inch (2.5 cm) width.

Instructions for making a corsage

 Separate each spray into several smaller stems

 

Separate each spray of artificial flowers into several individual stems. This will provide an assortment of smaller flowers that are easy for kids to handle, as well as lots of variety for creating the corsages.

Lay a strip of masking tape or duct tape sticky side up on the table. Roll the ends under to hold the tape in place on the table.

 

Place a variety of flowers on the tape

 

Encourage kids to add and remove flowers to the strip of tape until the arrangement is just right.

They exercise their creativity and fine motor skills as they choose and arrange flowers and leaves.

Make sure most of the stem is laying over the tape.

 

Add a strip of tape over the flowers to hold in place

 

When the arrangement is complete, place another strip of tape sticky side down over the flower stems and press down firmly. This will sandwich the stems between the two pieces of tape.

If possible, leave a bit of sticky tape visible on the end.

 

Duct tape rolled around stems helps to combine flowers into a corsage

 

Starting at one end of the tape, roll up the strip of tape from one end to the other. You can help younger kids get started by rolling over a bit of the tape.

Kids can use both hands to roll the tape, and the result doesn't have to look perfect.

This step just ensures that the flowers are gathered or bunched together in a small bouquet.

 Tie a ribbon around the corsage to draw the flowers together firmly

                                                  STEP 1                                          STEP 2

  • The stems shown on the left have been rolled up in the tape and are bunched together loosely. 
  • The stems are then drawn in tighter with a ribbon as shown on the right.


Tie a bow in the ribbon and curl the ends to hang loosely from the corsage.

If you use wide tape, you can glue a wider ribbon around the stem to cover the tape.

The corsage can be pinned to clothing, or displayed as a flower arrangement in a small vase.
