Spring is blossoming and what better way to celebrate than with a May Day bouquet? It’s a clever craft perfect for attentive eyes and busy little fingers. Not to mention, it’s a pretty cool way to honor a timeless tradition without having to hoist a maypole in the grass out back. With just a few supplies, the kiddos will have an easy time assembling these paper napkin flower bundles.
Fold the cut sections back and forth like an accordion and pinch in the middle. Give the blossom a stem by wrapping a pipe cleaner around the pinch and twisting the ends together. Carefully fluff each layer of flower, pulling as close to the pipe cleaner as possible. Take care, these petals are fragile!
What cool springtime crafts have you got planned for the kiddos? We want to know!
