Today’s craft go with the saying “They grow like weeds!” Kids, that is. This morning I measured my son and he has grown nearly an inch since his birthday in February. I think he is playing catchup since he’s been a shortie since birth. I still can’t believe how fast he is growing! Can we slow it down a bit?
Anyways, back to the craft. We are going to turn your child’s face into a flower. Well…not literally, silly! We are going to use some basic items to make a cute craft. I call it the “Muffin Cup Flower.” This craft can be created all year long or even be turned into a last minute Mother’s Day gift.
Let’s grab our supplies:
You will need muffin cups, construction paper, glue, picture of your child, watercolors/paint and glue. Optional-child size rolling pin.
First pick a few muffin cups you want to use for the flower part. You can use as many as you like. We decided to use three plain & one decorated.
Then if you like, flatten them with your hand or using a child size rolling pin, get your child involved in the flattening.
Let them dry completely.
Grab your paper punch or scissors & cut your child’s face out of the printed picture.
Next draw & cut out a flower stem out of green construction paper.
Now you are ready to assemble your flower. Layer & glue your muffin cups together. Add your child’s face cutout on top. Then glue your stem to the paper and add the muffin cup layer where the flower would be. You are complete!
Wouldn’t this be great to add the date in the corner, along with you child’s age & height to go with the saying “They grow like weeds?”
