Construction Paper Flowers Craft For Kids

If you are looking for a simple and fun flower craft for kids that also makes a great gift, then you will enjoy this construction flower craft. I got the idea from the back of a package of Crayola construction paper. These construction paper flowers are easy to make and are fun for all ages; and the best part is that they don’t have to be perfect – they are unique and individual flowers just like the people making them.

How To Make The Construction Paper Flowers (one flower)

  • Vertically cut two strips of green paper the length of the construction paper and about 1 cm or so in width (you can get a paper trimmer here that will make the cutting easier).
  • Cut five strips (about 1 cm wide) of one other colour of paper (these will be your flower’s petals).
  • Finally, using your third colour of construction paper strip, cut one more 1cm.
  • Take a piece of the green paper and twirl it around the end of your pen or pencil.
  • Then carefully take the rolled up paper off the end and pinch one side of the paper. Place a dab of glue under the top flap to secure it to the paper, then gently let it loosen up a little so that it resembles a leaf. Do the same to the other piece of green construction paper.

  • Repeat step five with the five strips of construction paper that you have set aside for your flower’s petals.
  • Repeat step five again for the colour you set aside for the centre of your flower OR cut a circle shape (see photo for example). The circle is an easier way to attach the petals together and is less frustrating for younger children.
  • Take the piece of green construction paper that you had set aside for the stem and fold it in half.
  • Place all the pieces on the stem with glue – holding each one in place for a few seconds until the glue sets.
  • Lay the flower down until the glue is completely dry and then find a vase to display your work!
