What blooms in the spring? DIY Spring meadow on paper and outdoors
I wanted to bring the most famous spring flowers closer to the children, so we created a picture of a spring meadow. Glueing is suitable for children from two and a half to three years. Older children will also be interested in flower names. In this article you will find inspiration for a simple but nice creation.
What we made
We created a picture of a spring meadow. I tried to make color paper as faithful as possible to flowers that grow in spring. First we talked about the name of each flower, how it grows, and then the children glued it on paper. We also searched for flowers outside and repeated the names of the picture. Perfect when you take the picture out. You can find several flowers according to the drawing.
Suitable for: 2,5+ years old
Glueing is suitable for children from two and a half to three years. Filip at two and a half years managed to stick flowers on paper, but I think their names went with one ear in the other and out. Martin remembered the flowers also because we looked for them and looked more closely.
What you need
- Color paper
- White paper
How to do it
First I prepared a pattern of flowers on white paper. I drew an oval like a clover, a wheel like a coltsfoot, a tulip, a daisy and a snowdrop. Then I cut out the flowers and cut the colored or white paper according to the original. When I had the flowers finished, we talked to the children for a while what their names were and how they grow, that the tulip has a flower up, but the snowdrop again down.
The children then glued the flowers on green paper, which represented a meadow. Older children can prepare the flowers themselves and can stick the paper even more.
This creation was useful for several reasons. The children practiced glue, trained fine motor skills, and learned five spring flowers, which can be seen in the park or in the meadow. They enjoyed gluing. I would definitely recommend that you take the picture out and look for flowers. It is also very entertained.
I wish you a lot of fun. 🙂
