Happy First Day of Spring! These spring flowers were super fun to make and it's a great way to welcome in my favorite season of the year.
Spring Flowers Supply List: 2 toilet paper rolls, scissors, construction paper, crayons or markers, glue
Cut your toilet paper rolls in half so that you have 4 smaller tubes. Cut slits half way down each tube. I did various sized cuts so that the flowers had different sized petals.
I cut 3 of the tubes and let Cole cut the last one by himself. It was difficult for him to cut through the cardboard tube but he enjoyed the challenge.
Fold back the slits that you made.
Using crayons, markers or paints decorate the petals of your flowers. We used Roll It Paints. I like these paints a lot because they are easy for little hands to use.
Book Suggestion: It's Spring! is a great book to introduce young children to the sights and sounds that come with the season of spring. After sharing this story with my son we went for a scavenger hunt in the backyard to look for our own signs of spring.
