For this activity you will need artificial flowers, narrow ribbon, a plastic funnel and 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.
The flowers may have leaves attached. The leaves will help to support the flowers in the funnel and fill out the bouquet. And a butterfly adds a fun, decorative touch!
Small flowers work best for this activity.
- 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.
Kids will be so proud to present this pretty nosegay on Mother's Day.
Your bouquet can easily be placed in a vase for display.
Happy Mother's Day!
