This Easy Daffodil Spring Craft is a fun way to celebrate the arrival of the season! Using just a few common craft supplies, these daffodils are a quick craft to make up any time you need some bright and colorful additions to your home or classroom. This Daffodil Spring Craft could easily be made into a sweet Mother’s Day card too! Yay for quick and easy cheerful spring-time crafts!
Young crafters can work on developing important fine-motor skills while using a glue stick and separating layers of cupcake liners.
This is a simple project for introducing three-dimensional art too!
Gather Your Materials:
For this Easy Daffodil Spring Craft, you will need:
- Blue cardstock paper
- Green card stock or construction paper cut into long strips
- Yellow cupcake liners
- Mini yellow cupcake liners
- Glue stick
Invite the students to use a glue stick to attach the green paper stems to the blue background paper, leaving space in between for the flower tops.
After the stems are attached, students can open a yellow cupcake liner and use a glue stick to attach the cupcake liner to the tops of the stems.
Next, the students can use the glue stick to add a yellow mini cupcake liner to the center of each flower.
Allow the glue to dry completely, and you’re done!
- Use puffy “snow paint” from our snowman portrait project to add fluffy three-dimensional clouds!
- Create a daffodil garden display with a collection of these pictures on your classroom’s bulletin board for some added colorful cheer!
- Tip – One of our favorite books to read together after doing this craft is Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert — a great book to introduce young children to colors and flowers.
- Plant some flower seeds together. Marigolds are easy for beginners to grow, and the seeds are quite affordable. If planted in paper cups, the sprouts may appear in time for Mother’s Day!
