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!

 

Here’s What You’ll Need for this Flower Craft:

  • green pipe cleaner cut into thirds

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 (this first part is just to get a good hold with the floral tape, so the spoons are held together)
  • Wrap the spoons again, going all the way up to the end of the handle

  • Now insert your green pipe cleaner into some spaces on the tape
  • Insert the yellow pipe cleaner down the center of the spoons so some of the yellow is sticking out of the top

    If you have other kid-friendly craft tutorials, we’d love for you to submit them.Thanks for a great project idea!

  2. Fantastic idea – I volunteer to look after 2-4 year olds and have been given the task to create Mother’s Day crafts with the kids. Love it! Thanks so much!!!

    • Aw. 2-4…I miss that age. You’ll definitely want to get the floral tape started for them. That’s the trickiest part and could get really frustrating for both of you. If you just give the spoons a good wrap to start, the little ones should be able to finish it out. Their moms are going to love their little spoon flowers.

  3. Nice and easy to make. I am in the children’s department at my church and always looking for easy & cheap crafts to teach the children. This one is quite easy and cheap too. God bless you.

    • I am so glad that you found a craft that will work for you. Thank you for leaving me such a nice comment. It made my day. God Bless

  4. I did this with my toddler (1year old) class and it was so fun they enjoyed taping the spoons and filling the cup.

    • That is so wonderful to hear. I always worry about the crafts I publish. I try to make them simple enough, so kids can manage them without frustration. I’m so glad that your 1-year-old was able to wrap the spoons and have fun doing it! That’s great news. Thank you for letting me know. Enjoy your new Spoon Flower. Happy Spring!
