A Plastic Spoon Spring Flower Craft For Kids

In my experience, The first flower to bloom  has always been the Crocus flower. It blooms so early, that it has to suffer through late spring Midwest blizzards. They really are one of the first signs that spring is near, and thank God for That! This little Crocus Flower Craft would be a really cute gift for mom on Mother’s Day or even a cute Teacher Gift! Of course, in my opinion, they are the perfect Spring is Near craft.

A plastic spoon flower for Mother's Day or teacher gift! - KidFriendlyThingsToDo.comNote:*This is such a fun and simple craft.  The hardest and sometimes frustrating part will be facing the spoons inward and getting them to stay while you wrap them. If you are doing this with very small kids, you might want to get the spoons partially wrapped for them and then hand them over for the rest of the craft. If you get them wrapped from the middle to the bottom, they should be good to go and easy for little ones! They can finish wrapping to the top of the handles.

  • Face all 3 spoons inward, forming a triangle with the handles
  • Start wrapping the middle with floral tape and go all the way down
  • Wrap the spoons again, going all the way up to the end of the handle
