I love Spring! It is an exciting time as blossoms pop on tree and flowers begin to grow. Tulips have to be one of my favorites, so I thought it would be fun to make Tissue Paper Tulips.
- a sketch of a tulip cut out
- tissue paper cut into squares
- styrofoam cup (optional)
- popsicle stick/craft stick
We started by rolling up a bunch of tissue paper squares into balls. I was surprised by how much my two year old really enjoyed it. After we got enough to cover the tulip we spread glue all over the top and placed the tissue paper all over it. Then we taped a craft stick onto the back of the tulip. I then trimmed down the styrofoam cup because it was a little too tall and cut a slit in the bottom. We then stuck the tulip in the cup and talked about how flowers grow. I put the flower down low in the cup and made it grow as we talked about how they need sun, water, and nutrients from the soil. The girls had a fun time helping their flowers grow.
