kids-art

Kids can create Valentine’s Day flowers that will last forever! Follow these simple how-to steps and craft a bouquet that your children can give to their grandparents, friends or anyone else they want to celebrate on this special day.

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Red, pink and white tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Red and pink glitter
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • A paintbrush
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • A marker

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Layer the tissue paper, alternating colors. This provides the perfect opportunity to teach your child about patterns.
  2. Draw a large circle with the marker. The bigger the circle, the wider or larger the flower. This step adds another math lesson, helping you to teach your child about basic geometric shapes.
  3. Cut the circles out.
  4. Fold the circles in half. Cut a two thin slits at the center. Space the slits less than one-inch apart.
  5. Place each circle on your work surface. Pour a small pool of glue onto a paper plate or piece of scrap cardboard. Use the paintbrush to coat the top of each piece of tissue with glue.
  6. Sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Shake off the excess.
  7. Let the tissue paper dry completely.
  8. Stack the pieces of tissue again. Layer three or more pieces for each flower.
  9. Thread a pipe cleaner through each stack of tissue. Push the pipe cleaner through one slit and down the other. Twist the pipe cleaner together under the bottom piece of tissue and fluff the flower.
