DIY paper blooming lilac and fruit tree

Making a blooming tree is quite a challenge for children under three years of age. Three-year-olds can handle glueing  easily. But what happens when a lilac is produced instead of a tree? It’s not that easy anymore. In this article you will find inspiration for spring creation.

What we made

We created a spring picture of a blossoming fruit tree and a blossoming lilac, because there are many in our neighborhood. Creating the tree was easy for children, the lilac was a big nut.

Suitable for: 2,5+ years old

Gluing the tree is suitable for children from three years. Filip at two and a half years glued flowers on a tree trunk and did not want to advise that they do not grow there. 🙂 Lilac can stick to four and older children. Martin struggled with gluing at the age of four, he needed advice.

What you need

  • White paper
  • Colored paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Crayons

How to do it

Blooming Fruit Tree

I cut white flowers from white paper. I drew a tree on green paper. You can also glue it from colored paper. Children stuck flowers to the tree top. Martin was very successful, Filip tried to stick flowers around the tree. Even where they did not belong.

We let the glue dry and the picture was finished. Both children were delighted with the creation.

Blooming Lilac

At first glance easy, at second glance relatively complicated creations, will give children the look of a lilac. I cut small flowers from purple and pink paper. On the white paper I painted two twigs that represented a lilac branch. Children were supposed to stick flowers around the twigs to create a large bunch of flowers.

Filip had great problems with gluing and needed intensive advice. Martin also needed advice, especially with flowers. He could stick the leaves himself.

In conclusion

Outside, you can show your children what a lilac looks like before gluing, or walk around a large fragrant bush after gluing. Children enjoy creating flowers that grow outdoors, having a lot of fun and also like to look for flowers outside.

I wish you a lot of fun. 🙂
