8 Easy Flower crafts for your toddler and preschooler

As it’s nearly Spring, here 8 super easy flower crafts to do with your toddler and preschooler. They require very little preparation and you probably have everything you need in your house right now.

  1. Painting with left-over flowers. If your Mother’s day flowers are dying out, use them to paint. My daughter loved doing that activity and she really enjoyed swirling around some of the flowers to have that spiral effect. You could also use the petals to make a lovely collage.


2. With some cupcake cases, pompoms and wooden sticks, make some super simple flowers.


3. If your child is fan of stickers, use them to decorate some flowers. I cut the flowers and the leaves and my children decorated them with stickers of insects.


4. For this one, we painted the cardboard tubes, then we slotted into each other 2 flowers to stand in the cardboard tube.


5. Which child doesn’t like a bit of glitter? Little disclaimer: for environmental issues, i don’t use glitter anymore. We did this craft years ago! I have not yet disposed of my leftover glitter as there is currently no safe way to dispose of that kind of plastic so they are safely stored in my garage. I don’t know why it took me so long to awaken to the fact that glitter is basically microscopic plastic. Anyway, nowadays, there are some alternatives.

7. Painting flowers

8. Make a flower vase with a milk jug cut in two. We then stuck all around some wooden sticks and stickers.
