There are no spring flowers to be found outside – in fact more snow is in the forecast! So we made a spring flower craft for the inside.
We used the same technique as the Valentine’s Day Window Heart.
This time I used much smaller squares of contact paper which made it much more manageable for each kid to decorate his and her own square. It put down a square of contact paper sticky side up and let the kids go to town with a box of pre-cut tissue paper.
The smaller sized squares made it much easier for me to put the top layer of contact paper (sticky side down) on with just me. The heart was so large, I needed my husband to help me place the top piece on! Then I used a template I made from construction paper to cut out the flowers.
At four and 3/4, Connor was more focused and had a greater attention span to spend time carefully laying out his pieces, but lost steam trying to fill it all in. Amelia on the other hand, had a shorter attention span at 21 months, and was more into the wild abandon that is small pieces of tissue paper!
Do you see all that snow?!?!?!?!??
