Mother’s Day Craft for Kids to Make: Tissue Paper Flowers

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!

Mother's Day Craft for Kids to Make: Tissue Paper Flowers

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.

I laid out a piece of contact paper, right side up on the table. [I took a tip from Melissa at The Chocolate Muffin Tree and taped down the edges so it wouldn’t curl up.]

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!

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.

    These look beautiful! I love handmade flowers.

    Ps. Thanks for mentioning my blog on Facebook last week. I have been on holidays without internet access and it was a lovely surprise to come home to :)

    Very cute! I like contact paper projects…little ones can have fun sort of throwing things onto it, and then it can be cut to look "like something".

    This is great – I plan to reuse our Easter tree for flower crafts, and this one will be perfect.

    I’ll bet after they cover up the contact paper with the other piece and u give them some pictures of flowers, that they can draw different flowers on the contact paper & cut them out themselves
