As a child-led activity, kids choose and arrange the flowers in the bouquet. Encourage kids to talk about their creations: the colors and types of flowers they choose; their favorite colors; who will receive their gifts.
Provide a variety of artificial flowers and colorful ribbons kids can choose from to make a pretty gift for Mother's Day, or any day of the year.
- colored tape.
Artificial grasses and flowers are available at your local craft or dollar store. Usually they come in bunches that can be separated into individual flowers by cutting the wire stems with pliers or scissors. Small-sized petals work best for this activity.
The flowers may have leaves attached. The leaves will help to support the flowers in the funnel and fill out the bouquet.
A butterfly adds a fun, decorative touch!
Poke the stems through the funnel until a bouquet is created. Kids will want to insert and remove flower stems until they achieve the desired effect.
- Stems should protrude from the bottom of the funnel so you can wrap tape around the ends of the stems to secure the bouquet to the funnel.
You may have to assist kids with winding colored tape around the end of the stems to secure the bouquet to the funnel. If the stems are too long, trim them to make them more manageable. They will form a handle for the child to hold the bouquet.
Set the funnel into a vase to display your bouquet.
Kids will be so proud to present a pretty nosegay to family and friends.
Happy Mother's Day!
