Henry and I had a little fun making some tissue paper flowers! We made two different types of tissue paper flowers for my mom’s Mother’s Day craft that kids can make!
Tissue Paper Flowers on Contact Paper:
Henry got to work cutting up different colors of tissue paper (sneaking in some scissors practice). I had tissue paper with dots and stars on it, too. Those were his favorites.
Henry and I stuck the pieces of tissue paper that he cut onto the contact paper to make a tissue paper collage. Then flattened them out as much as possible, and covered with another piece of contact paper.
I got my cutting practice in too! I cut lots of flower shapes out of the tissue paper collage.
Henry chose buttons and pipe cleaners for each flower and I hot glued them on.
Speaking of pipe cleaners, Henry got a kick out of making shapes with them. He made a T at first and was thrilled that he could do it. Then made an R and a bridge!
Tissue Paper Flowers:
We also made flowers out of just the tissue paper. We made these for the Valentine’s Tissue Wreath, only this time Henry drew on the circles with markers instead of dipping them in paint.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
I featured five Mother’s Day ideas on It’s Playtime this week, too!
