Activity Flower

With summer coming up, I thought this would be a good way to decide what the kids can do when they all want to do something different at the same time. Underneath each petal has an activity, so when one wants to read, another wants to ride bikes, the third wants to do a craft and the fourth wants to do play a game, this will decide. And I think it is cute and fun to make.

You will need:a colored paper plate (or paint a white plate), green paper for the stem, scissors, fake flower, colored paper for petals, glue, cylinder container (like Pringles) and large paperclips.

Wrap the cylinder container with green paper for stem. poke small hole in the center of the plate for flower.

Cut round circles out of colored paper for petals. And glue on paper clips around the plate.

Write activities on the back of the petals (read a book, ride bikes, do a puzzle, do a craft, color, go for a walk, play dress up, sing songs and play a game or what ever activities your children like to do.

Place flower in the hole and sit flower on the stem.
