Bright Painted Flowers

Welcome spring with pretty flowers made from toilet-paper tubes.


What you'll need:
  • Empty toilet-paper tubes
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Kid-friendly scissors
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Green card stock
  • Glue
  • Tissue paper

1. Draw a ring 2 inches from the end of the tube. Repeat at other end. From each ring, draw lines every 1/2 inch. Snip along each line to make petals.

2. Fold the petals back to create a flower. Paint the flower and bamboo skewers; let dry. Cut out green leaves and glue to the skewers.

3. Push the skewer through one end of the flower's center until it just touches the other end. Crumple an 8-inch square of tissue paper and glue in the center.
