Flower crafts are always a big hit at our house. We love making and creating with them. We did a slight change from the Flower Wreath that we did two years ago.
We took the felt buttons from our Flower Button Sensory Bin and made a wreath with them.
This was a great way to talk about colors and shapes and have fun while making the wreath.
We had a lot of fun making these. It added a little fine motor activity for us. This was a craft project that I did with my youngest. I really do try and do a few things with them. It is fun to be a part of the activity and not just sitting on the side.
We read the book Planting a Rainbow. It is one of our favorites. I love all the colors of the flowers.
What you need for this activity: paper plate, glue, and felt flower buttons. Here are the links to the mix of felt buttons that we used: Felt Buttons: Garden Party, Felt Buttons: Bright Blossoms, Felt Buttons: Fresh Flowers, and Buttons, Flowers.
The first step we did was put some glue on the paper plate. We used foam brushes at the start but stopped using the after a while. The buttons absorbed a lot of the glue as we put it one them.
Then we just dipped the buttons in the glue. It was sticky fun for us!
We placed the buttons around the paper plate. We layered some of the buttons and others were put in single layers. It was tons of fun to make the wreaths. Plus we both had our own ideas of what would work best.
Here is a look at our final wreaths. We had a fun time making them together. We love doing crafts together.
