♥ What do we need / our budget

  • colored paper / approx. 0,50 Eur
  • scissors / usually already available
  • glue stick / up to 1 Eur
  • pencil / 0,30 Eur

Step 1

The base of our bouquet is greenery.
Take an green A4 sheet of paper and fold it in half. From folded side cut it with the scissors leaving  2-3 cm on the opposite end. Make cuts on a different distance to make it look like grass.

Step 2

Apply some glue on the one end of the green grass band and roll it to make a circle with diameter approx. 5 cm. Roll the remaining band around it and fix the end with the glue.

Step 3

Take a few paper sheets of different color and draw 5-7 flowers of any shape you like. It can be tulips, roses or classic chamomile shape. You can also let your child draw them with a crayons on a white paper. Don’t restrict your imagination and creativity!!!
