Making Your Easter Blooming Flower Crowns
To make Easter blooming flower crowns have kids first cut eight flower shapes from construction paper. If you have younger kids in your class, then consider having stencils they can trace or having them pair up with older kids. If you’re trying to do this craft with really young children, you could also provide precut flower shapers.
Next, cut a slit in the center of each paper plate and then cut it in triangle slices like a pie. Then have kids bend the triangle shapes up to form leaves. Lastly, glue the flowers onto the tips of the leaves.
Have kids talk about how their flower crowns are like and unlike the crown of thorns Jesus wore on the cross. Use this time to read through the Easter story from the Bible.
