Easy Daffodil Spring Craft
This activity is perfect for young crafters! They can work on developing important fine motor skills while using a glue stick and separating layers of cupcake liners. Plus, it’s easy to prep and the final product is so pretty. This is a simple project for introducing three-dimensional art, too!
- Blue cardstock
- Green cardstock or construction paper – cut into thin strips
- Yellow cupcake liners
- Mini yellow cupcake liners
- Glue stick
How to Make this Easy Daffodil Spring Craft
To begin, 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.
RELATED RESOURCE: Easy Readers – Spring Collection
Allow the glue to dry completely, and you’re done. You have a simple and beautiful craft your kids will be proud to show off!
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.
Extend the Activity
- Use puffy “snow paint” to add fluffy three-dimensional clouds.
- Create a daffodil garden display with a collection of these pictures on your classroom bulletin board for some added colorful cheer.
- 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 just in time for Mother’s Day.
