A fun way to make a flower using extra paper rolls. This paper roll flower is hands-on and very easy to make.
Plus kids love it when you can create something fun on their own.
It is a fun painting project that kids can do just about any time of the year but makes a great spring flower painting.
This is a great addition to the flower activities on the site.
A simple paper roll craft for kids to do. It does not require much but makes great flower prints. It also could be done on a big roll of paper outside for even more fun.
If you are looking for a fun book to read with this craft you can check out Flowers by Gail Gibbons.
What you need to make the Paper Roll Flowers
- 7 paper rolls
- string or yarn
- paper plate
- paints – you have two circles of paper a large on the outside and a smaller on the inside
Making the Flower Paper Roll Stamper
Tie a string or yarn around the paper rolls to help them hold their shape.
You could also use masking tape to secure it again. You put a paper roll in the center and put six around the outside to make the flower.
You want to make sure the paper rolls don’t slide or move. We had to tie them tighter after we first started.
Making the Paper Roll Flower Prints
Putting on the Paper Rolls
You place their paper rolls on the paper plate. Then you more the paper rolls around the paper plate until the paper rolls are covered with paints.
Stamp the rolls on the paper
You then stamp the rolls on the paper. You can see the flower paper right from the start. It is fun to see that first flower on the paper.
You are able to do two and sometimes three flowers with one paint set on them. You want to cover the whole paper.
You may want to go back to the paint every time if you want the flowers to be brighter.
You can also use the finished product to make wrapping paper. It is a great project for using household items to make artwork.
