Flower Arts and Crafts
There are few symbols as versatile as the flower when It comes to crafting ideas. Because this ubiquitous sign of spring comes in so many colors and different varieties, there are almost endless possibilities to decorate, craft, and create an entire garden of happiness!
We’ve created a massive collection of all kinds of flower crafts ideas that will keep your kiddos busy all spring long. Most of these spring crafts require standard supplies you likely have on hand like colorful paper, scissors, glue, pipe cleaners, paper plates, and egg cartons. These flower crafts for kids range from super simple to a bit more complex making them great arts and crafts for both older and younger kids.
For older kids, we have unique paper flower stems with 3-dimensional petals. This paper flower craft is an excellent way to improve kids’ scissor skills as it requires them to curl strips of colored paper for the petals.
Younger kids will love the ultra-forgiving tissue paper flowers. With just a few pipe cleaner (or paper) stems and leaves, crumpled-up piles of tissue paper turn into the beautiful petals of a flower (with maybe just a quick reshaping).
Our paper plate flower is another favorite for little kids who can stretch their creativity with colorful patterns or designs on a paper plate. They can practice their fine motor skills by cutting notches into the edges of a paper plate to create “petals.”
Color or paint popsicle sticks and glue them to the paper plate to create a sturdy stem. Pop them into a potted plant or garden for a whimsical homemade touch or create your own indoor garden of DIY flowers.
Flower Craft Gifts
Browse all our simple flower crafts for kids for genius Mother’s Day gift ideas. We love the easy-peasy painted rocks. Whether your kids choose to paint one gorgeous spring flower or use the rock surface to paint an entire flower bouquet, mothers, grandmothers, and even beloved aunties will love these sweet gifts. Painted rocks make great paperweights to keep napkins in place at a windy summer picnic or as decorations in your yard or garden.
Any of these fun flower crafts for kids would make a sweet gift for anyone special in your kids’ lives. (Keep them in mind for end-of-the-year teacher gifts!) For an extra special touch, frame any of our 2-dimensional crafts or consider putting a 3-dimensional craft into a shadow box to keep these crafts safe for years to come.
Another awesome spring art project is creating an egg carton flower. There are several ways to fashion flowers from egg cartons and kids love watching the bland containers turn into pretty (and totally different) flowers. (And don’t tell the kids, but this is another art and craft project that really helps with scissors and fine motor skills.)
If you’ve got cupcake liners on hand (is that like asking if you’ve got paper handy?), break them out for even more flower power. With their circular shape, cupcake liners make fabulous flowers. Add a cute pom pom to the center to help define the flower head and play with adding multiple layers. Glue them to paper or use pipe cleaners as the stem.
To add a bit of learning, make a fun counting game by adding the number of petals you create with each craft, whether you are cutting them out (like with the paper plate flower), drawing them in (like on a painted rock), or creating them from paper. Ask your kids math questions like, “If there are five petals on one flower, how many will be on two flowers?”
To bring in some science, talk about the parts of flowers and the function of each part. When deciding where or how to display your new flower crafts, discuss what flowers need to survive and how that might influence where flowers are planted and when they bloom. If your kids are interested, you could even have them label the parts of the flower on some of the more basic paper flower crafts.
