Coaxing the flowers to pop open in the springtime is a task that’s guaranteed to give a gardening fairy’s wings a real workout.
Here’s a fun project that will let your young gardener try their hand at putting together a colourful arrangement of tulips that would make Rosetta proud.
- Wooden kitchen skewers
- Green craft paint and paintbrush
- Scrapbook paper
- Glue stick
First, create a stem for each tulip by painting a kitchen skewer green.
While the paint dries, print the template and cut out the pieces. For each flower, cut two centres, two left petals, and two right petals out of scrapbook paper.
Glue the flower centres together back-to-back with the pointed tip of the skewer stem sandwiched between them.
Glue a petal to each side of the tulip face (the edges will overlap in the middle). Then flip the tulip over and glue the remaining two petals to the other side.
