The tips of the daffodils are peeking out of the ground and it is time to switch our clocks for Daylight saving time, a good time for an easy spring paper flower kid craft.
One of the first flowers, I see in our yard is grape hyacinths. They grow in colorful purple blue clumps. I choose a paper craft because it is easy to do and the supplies are usually available.
This spring paper flower craft for kids is great for working on fine motor skills, cutting, punching holes, and picking up the tiny dots.
Pair with some flower books for crafting and reading together. These crafts would be great for the letter F or H theme too. You could talk about the parts of a flower and combine science too.

How to Make a Spring Paper Flower Kid Craft – Grape Hyacinth
- construction paper – purple, green and blue
- hole punch
First, cut the 9 x 12 in piece of green in half so you have 2 – 9 x 6 in pieces. Then, cut one of the pieces in to long stripes about 1/4 in wide.
Next, lay 4 or 5 of the strips on the paper as stems and glue to the blue paper. Then, cut the rest of the green strips in half. Glue as leaves.
Then, punch holes in the purple piece of paper. I went around the edge once.
Glue the dots at the tops of the stems for the grape hyacinths.
Don’t have purple paper? You could color a piece of white or use pink too.
Enjoy your spring paper flower craft. Looking for another flower craft try this tulip craft.
Your little one to small to punch the holes or they are too hard to pick up? Grab a little paint or markers and make some dots.
