It has been a cold week & we are expecting a winter storm in a couple of days. I think my daughter must be already over the winter because for the past few days she has been leaving trails of flower drawings & sunny days around the house.
While unpacking at our new home, I came across boxes & boxes of plastic cutlery. It has been sitting on our kitchen counters for weeks waiting for us to find a place to store it. We decided to put some of it to good use & kept my daughter’s flower theme alive.
Plastic Spoon Flowers
To make, draw out a simple flower shape around the head of the spoon.
Cut out as many shapes as you would like to make flowers. We cut out several.
Cut a slit in your shape at the top of one of the petals & slide the spoon in to see if it fits.
Slide the spoon back out & have your child paint, color or scribble on the flower shapes.
We painted with acrylics.
We used markers & highlighters, which are Mai’s favorites.
After the paint & markers dry, re-insert the spoon. We used a bit of hot glue to hold the spoon in place, but you could also use a piece of tape on the back.
Finish them off with green pipe cleaners for the stems.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Love this and definitely a great project to try to get ready for spring soon!! 🙂
