Yarn Wrapped Flowers: Spring Fine Motor Craft for Kids

By 7:00 AM , , , ,

I loved our yarn wrapped rainbows so much that I am sharing another activity involving yarn today for Fine Motor Friday: Yarn Wrapped Tulips.  I love that this series allows me to share my crafty ideas that are not necessarily homeschool related; partaking in this series has been so fun for my kiddos and we hope you have been inspired by all the fine motor activities from us and fellow co-hosts!

Anyways, it seems like our yarn wrapped rainbow was a big hit with many of you, too.  The other day we pulled out our stash of yarn and used it to wrap cardboard shaped tulips; a wonderful craft for Spring.... AND would make a lovely, lasting bouquet for a loved one {Ahem! Mother's Day is coming up!}


Flower Craft for Kids


Set up was simple; I free handed some tulips on a piece of cardboard and had the kiddos wrap them up with yarn.  I cut slits along the edges of the tulips to make it easier to wrap the yarn.  Wrap away to your hearts content!  The tulips seemed to be a bit trickier than the rainbows, so be ready to help out, if needed.
We started wrapping them over the brown cardboard, but once we had made several, I realized I didn't like the brown showing.  So, after they were wrapped, I quickly colored in the brown spots.  However, that is personal preference-- not something you have to do.

To make the stem, Big Brother and I colored some craft sticks green and slid them onto the back of the tulip.  Add them to a jar and you have a beautiful handmade bouquet that sneaks in plenty of fine motor practice!
