Breezy Blossoms

Breezy Blossoms craft

What’s more colorful than a spring flower garden? Why not get together with Grandpa or a neighbor to create your own breezy blossoms. Bring back that fresh feeling any time of year!

  • 1.

    Color blossoms. Cover your craft area with newspaper. Tear three coffee filters into thirds (or ask an adult to cut them). Color each piece with Crayola® Washable Bold Markers. Dampen the filters by either spraying or sprinkling them with water. Watch the colors bleed to create a tie-dyed look. Air-dry the filters.

  • 2.

    Draw a garden. On white paper, use your imagination to draw a garden scene with stems to hold your Breezy Blossoms! This is a great time to talk together about gardens such as fields of Dutch tulips, formal Japanese gardens, or flower shows in your hometown.

  • 3.

    Add your blossoms. Accordion-fold the flowers and then open them. Glue them in place in your garden scene.
