It’s Friday and that means it is time for another summer boredom buster. This week we are bringing the outdoors inside with this paper flower wall art. All you need is your Creative Play Kit to make this awesome craft. Before we get to the tutorial I have a tip for doing this craft with small children. Mom should complete steps 1 through 6 and let little ones complete the rest of the craft. Older kids can make the entire project independently. Okay, now let’s get this craft started.

Materials (All Found in the Creative Play Kit)
- 10-15 Sheets of Construction Paper
- Colored Pencils
- Glue Sticks
- Chenille Stems
First, draw 2 flower petals on a sheet of construction paper.
Use that drawing as the pattern and cut through all of your sheets (except for one set aside) of construction paper.
After you have cut out your flower petals, fold the stack of petals in half.
Next, take your piece of construction paper set aside and fold it in half.
Then fold the sheet of construction paper in half again.
Draw a circle on the folded up construction paper.
Next, cut out your circles.
Use one circle as the base for your flower and add glue to the edge.
Begin adding your petals to the circle.
Continue adding petals until you are happy with your flower.
Next, add 5-10 chenille stems through the center of your flower.
Twist the backs of your chenille stems to secure them.
Lastly, wrap each chenille stem around a colored pencil to create a spring.
Hang your paper flower wall art on the wall and you’re done. This turned out so well that the flowers are currently hanging on our living room wall. You just can’t help but smile looking at them. Your kids will no doubt want some to hang in their rooms as well, so you may let them make multiples. It’s a perfect craft for a rainy summer afternoon to help keep kids creative and entertained.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
