Paper daffodil bunting

spring daffodil craft for kids

It’s been sunny and my thoughts are firmly on Spring. Our house has a beautiful bay window in the lounge which is absolutely perfect for our home-made sun catchers and bunting. We thought it would be fun to make paper daffodils and some extras to hang in the window. The toddler enjoyed this as it involved his favourite items from the craft box – scissors and glue!

You will need:

Selection of yellow and orange papers
Craft sticks
Green marker pen
Star cookie cutter

We traced round the star cookie cutter on sheets of yellow and orange paper and cut them out.

We also cut strips from the same paper, about 1 inch by 3 inches, for the bell of the daffodil.

The toddler placed glue at the end of each strip and we gently folded the strip to form a circle. He then placed more glue in the middle of each daffodil and stuck the bell in place. We tried to mix up the colours of the petals and bell. Whilst they were drying we coloured craft sticks with a green marker and glued them onto the backs of the daffodils. Pretty paper daffodils for Spring.

We made some extras to make into bunting, simply attaching them to bakers twine and fixing in the window.
