Kids Create: Flower Blossom Trees

Powe-Maynard, Iman

 

When the days seem to last a little bit longer, and the flowers begin to poke out of the ground, we can finally start believing that spring is on its way. The sunshine and the warmer weather always inspire me to “think spring” in my arts and crafts programs.  This week in Kids Create, we created Cherry Blossom trees with just a few, easy to find materials. This is a craft I’ve made every spring, since originally being inspired by an old boss of mine.


 

Materials:

Tree template printout

Assorted tissue paper (cut into small squares)

Glue


 

This simple, easy craft is a crowd pleaser for all ages! Toddlers, school age kids, and even caregivers enjoyed filling up their trees with blooming cherry blossoms. If you don’t have pink tissue paper handy, you can use any other color for other types of blossoms.

 

This craft can easily be taken from season to season. Use the same tree template in the Fall, and decorate the trees with Fall foliage. Or print the template on blue or black paper in the Winter, and decorate the tree with falling snow. The possibilities are endless!
