Valentine Flower Craft
In making flowers, there are actually a lot of ways on how children can do it depending on their age. In a certain age group, they can amazingly master great abilities on their own. What lies on your part is to help them and decide how much work they will do to come up with a Valentine flower.
First, draw each of them a template ahead of time. Draw or trace four petals in heart shape, a stem and two smaller hearts for the leaves. You may want to cut the hearts for younger children while you can let those bigger ones cut them by themselves. Use a construction paper for the flowers. Of course, the best color for the petals are pink or red and green colored hearts for the stem and leaves.
When gluing the parts of the Valentine flower, it is also best to use a construction paper for it. The result should be a cross between a card and a suitable picture for the frames. After all the parts have been assembled, get a piece of light colored paper under the bloom. Right when the children are done, you can borrow a Valentine phrase or verse and put it on the paper. Likewise, you can also let them construct and put their own message right on it.
Another creative way of creating these lovely flowers for Valentine’s Day is by using muffin and cupcake liners. Since these liners are already fluted, they are very much ideal on making Valentine flower. But again for you to make it, you will need to make heart-shaped templates for the stem and leaves and at the same time around construction paper to be glued on top of the stem. Next, let them add the liner on it and glue only the bottom of the circle. Finally, you now have the center for the flower. Try to add Valentine verse on it too for it to be more authentic.
The best thing about making these is the excitement and fun detailed on each kid’s face right after they have come up to their finished Valentine flower. No matter how beautiful or imperfect it is made, in their eyes, what they have accomplished is the most beautiful present they can ever give. Such flowers are perfect gift ideas from children for their loved ones, be it for their parents, grandparents, teachers and the like.
