If your kids or tweens need a boredom-buster this summer, may I suggest this fun and easy foam kids craft flower wreath? The Foamies Flower Kit makes it easy to create custom flowers that can then be assembled into a petite and sweet wreath. This kids craft is a perfect diversion for kids who need to keep their hands busy this summer.
- Darice Foamies Flowers Activity Bucket
- Piece of 12 x 12 Cardstock or Recycled Cardboard
- Glue Dots
- Darice Baker’s Twine
- Large and Small Dinner Plates and Pencil (Optional)
The Foamies Flower Kit comes with all the parts you need to make 24 flowers. Most of the pieces are self-adhesive (like stickers), but you will need Glue Dots to attach the flowers and leaves to the wreath.
There’s no wrong way to make a flower, so let kids loose and see what they come up with!
Once the flowers are made, we need a wreath base. Because the flowers are so lightweight, a piece of 12 x 12″ cardstock works well for a wreath, or you can use a piece of recycled cardboard.
Step two. To create the wreath base, trace a large dinner plate on a piece of 12 x 12″ cardstock and then trace a small dinner plate inside the larger circle. Cut out with scissors.
Step four. Add leaves and additional flower embellishments to the wreath, using Glue Dots if necessary.
Step five. Add a loop made of baker’s twine to the back of the wreath, for hanging. Tape in place with invisible tape.
I had a blast making this foam kids craft flower wreath, and I hope you do too. I can’t wait to make another one.
