Spring Art

The daffodils are everywhere so last week we decided to make our own.

We used cupcake liners for the flower trumpet and the rest is pretty self-explanatory.

If you're doing this with young children, I'd advise tracing/drawing the petals for them. Most of my six-year-olds could handle it, but the kiddos with weaker fine motor skills found it pretty labour intensive.




I've never seen pink daffs  before! I'm definitely going to be planting some of these next fall.




I found so many pretty daffodil pics on google I couldn't resist sharing a couple:)

  1. Those daffodils are a quick Spring fix for the classroom. I have 3 different sized cupcake liners and some different coloured/patterns ones. I let the kids chose up to 3 liners, so we have some colourful and cheerful trumpets. Does that make sense? http://rubberbootsandelfshoes.blogspot.ca/2012/04/coming-up-daffodils.html
