I was having a browse on Pinterest, as you do, and came across an idea for making flowers from cupcake cases. This appealed to me in a quick, easy and not too messy kind of a way, so I took note for the next time the wee girl asked to do a craft.
I didn’t have to wait for long!
You will need:
A sheet of paper
Cupcake cases, I used regular and mini ones, flattened
Green paper/card, cut into strips
I laid out everything that she would need and helped her with the first flower so that she knew what to do. Using a glue stick rather than PVA glue meant that she could manage the whole activity without too much input from me.
Start by sticking down a green strip of card for the stem of your flower. Then stick a flattened cupcake case onto the stem. We did a mix of small flowers using just a mini case and larger flowers using both a regular and mini case.
She enjoyed doing this activity so much that as soon as this garden of cupcake case flowers was complete, she started another one!
