Miss Meghan’s Craft Corner ~ Growing Flower

In this month’s edition of our library magazine we are beginning a fun new series where families with young children can find a simple and yummy recipe and a fun and easy related craft both of which will usually reflect the seasons.  So here is the first round of ‘Baking with Miss Lucy’ and ‘Miss Meghan’s Craft Corner’

For the March/April Magazine, Miss Lucy and I decided to feature a snack and craft for spring.   In the magazine, Lucy shared a recipe for making yummy dirt cups complete with worms!  And I am sharing a cute growing flower craft.

Growing Flower Craft

Materials needed:
Popsicle stick, paper or styrofoam cup, paper, glue
Optional: markers stickers, etc.

  1.  Ask an adult to make a small slit in the bottom of your cup, just large enough to fit the popsicle stick through.
  2. Cut out your flower and leaves using the provided pattern.

3.  Glue the flower and leaves to the popsicle stick and insert the stick through the bottom of the upside down cup.

4.  Reach your hand in from underneath (the opening of the cup) to raise and lower the flower so it looks as if it’s growing.

If you’d like you can color the popsicle stick ahead of time with a marker
Decorate the cup with markers, crayons, and stickers for a fun spring look!
Use pretty sheets of scrapbook paper for fun patterns on your leaves or flower.
