Photo Bouquet

5.0 based on 1 rating

What You Need:

  • Photos of the family
  • Construction paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Clear drying, non-toxic glue
  • Ribbon

What You Do:

  1. Choose a variety of photos, making sure that each family member is represented. You may even want to include family pets! Try to find a selection of close ups, group photos, and pictures from special events or holidays.
  2. Cut each photo into a circle. Use a coffee can or similar round object as a template.
  3. Ask your child to draw flower petals onto colored construction paper with a pencil. Choose shapes based on the type of flower selected. Daisies may have oval shaped petals, while roses may be more angular.
  4. Help her cut the petals with scissors.
  5. Now, glue the petals onto the back of the photos. Each photo will be in the center, on top of the paper petals.
  6. Encourage her to cut a stem and leaves from green construction paper, and to place them onto each flower (attaching the stems from behind). Set aside to dry.
  7. Lay one piece of tissue paper out flat onto a workspace or floor, folding one corner down to meet the opposite corner. This should make a triangle.
  8. Place the flower photos inside of the tissue paper, and fold the tissue paper around so that the tops of the flowers are revealed. Tie the tissue with a ribbon. Now you have a beautiful bouquet to give Mom on her special day!
