While paper flowers are never quite as awe-inspiring as God’s handiwork, this Spring Blossoms Craft kids will create in this craft project are simply amazing.
Colorful Elementary Children’s Ministry Craft: Spring Blossoms
These fluffy, bright spring blossom crafts are a snap to create. You’ll need:
- various colors of tissue paper or crepe paper cut into 10 x 20-inch wide strips
- chenille craft wires.
Have kids stack six tissue or crepe paper strips, and then smooth them flat. Then have kids fold the stacks lengthwise, accordion-style, in 2-inch sections, making five folds. Have kids twist a chenille craft wire tightly around the center of the accordion-folded paper.
To create the blossoms, spread the folds on both sides of the chenille craft wire and gently pull each layer of tissue or crepe paper toward the center. When all the layers have been pulled, a beautiful flower blossom remains.
Because these spring blossoms are easy to create, kids can make several to give as gifts, or they can create a colorful array of flowers for a unique bulletin board display that’s sure to brighten up your ministry.
