3-D Flower Card

What You Need:

  • Colored construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Proverb or poem
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Marker

What You Do:

  1. Let your child cut his largest square—at least 5" x 5"—out of colored construction paper.
  2. Have him cut out five more squares. Each one should be slightly smaller than the previous one.
  3. Fold each square in half two times.
  4. Have your child cut around the corners of each square fold. These cuts will become your lotus flower petals.
  5. Repeat this with each square.
  6. Encourage him to use a marker to write a proverb or a short poem in the center of your smallest square.
  7. Let your child put a drop of glue on the top of each paper piece, except for the smallest one.
  8. Layer the paper pieces on top of one another with the largest piece on the bottom. The paper with the proverb or poem should be on the top.
  9. Press the papers together gently.
  10. Use a pencil to gently curl the ends of the petals upward to make your flower appear three-dimensional.
  11. Tell him to give his lotus flower proverb to someone he loves!
