I love flowers. I love having a bunch of flowers in a vase on the bench. It makes my kitchen look fun and inviting and I just love the colours that they protrude to the interior of my home. It’s highly unsurprising that my daughters LOVE flowers too. They will pick the flowers from weeds and make a sweet posy using leaves and sticks and whatever else they can find to create their bouquet.
If your kids love flowers, then they will love this easy craft, using cupcake cases, buttons and paddle pop sticks to create a bouquet of flowers.
My Phoebe thoroughly enjoyed this craft, and at 3, I showed her the sequence of what needed to be stuck on what and she was able to follow the instructions.
This craft is so simple, you will want to make a range of flowers to put together in a bouquet.

1. Make your flower petals by following the instructions with your cupcake case. Flatten the case, then fold the case in half, and then in sections. Use the scissors to cut the widest edge with a curve. Open up the cupcake case and it will resemble the outline of a flower. Repeat the same process for the smaller sized cupcake cases.
2. Glue the largest cupcake case onto the top of the paddle pop stick first. Then layer the smaller cupcake case.
3. Glue the button in the middle of the flower, and then add a bead where the glue will seep out of the button holes.
4. Allow for your flower to dry, and then group them together to create a bouquet that can be put on display.
