One of my fondest memories of Year One was making Tissue Paper Flowers – I felt so clever!

Step One: Cut tissue paper to about 15cm x 12cm sheets (you can adjust this measurement to suit yourself)


Step Two : Place about 8 sheets in a pile then fold it like an accordion or like you’d make a hand fan.



Step Three: Tie a pipe cleaner (maybe a green one) to the centre of the paper pile



Step Four: Gently pull each piece of paper up to the middle of the flower so that each sheet is separated.


This should make a lovely Tissue Paper Flower! I also remember my teacher spraying a bit of perfume on my flower – pure joy!

Let your child design a Mothers’ Day card. Depending on your situation the card may be for Mum, Nan or an important female in your child’s life. If you want to stick with a flower theme your child could draw a vase and flowers on a card or trace around their hand and cut out pieces of paper to make flowers. Use any materials you have around your home – card, paper, alfoil, tissue paper – to make the card. Depending on the age of your child you can get your child to write a ‘rough’ copy of the card OR you might lightly write the words so your child can trace OR you might write what your child tells you and they can sign their name.

Make a heart photo frame. Cut a piece of card into a heart shape. Let your child pick a photo to stick in the middle – preferably one of them! Scrunch crepe or tissue paper and glue around the photo. Voila!



I hope you have a lovely Mothers’ Day on Sunday 12th May 2013!


My gorgeous girl and I!
