Why limit all the fun and surprise of making paper snowflakes to winter. By rounding the edges and using color paper you can make beautiful flowers with the same folding and cutting tricks.
Once again, this is exactly the same as making a snowflake but I included the steps just in case you need a refresher.
This is super adaptable for all ages and amount of time you're filling. If your kids are really little they will delight in opening up the flower after you've done the cutting. Perhaps they are just learning to use scissors in which case the stem and leaf are perfect challenges for them to take on. Making a flower takes under 10 minutes but if you have your little ones draw on the paper before or after cutting, make and entire garden on a section of wall or even use the cut out flower as a sort of stencil for another piece of art they can easily stay focused for an hour. Have fun!!!
