FREE MISC. LESSON - “Flower Craft and Writing”

by Growing Smart Readers
Pre-Kindergarten - 3rd Grade

✿ Free pattern for making a large flower! It has a special hiding place for a letter or note! It is designed so that your kids can add their OWN ideas and creativity to personalize it.

Make any time to bring spring or summer into the classroom. This can also be a special Thank You, Mother's Day, Grandparents' Day, a birthday surprise, or simply create these for decorating the classroom!

This is of my most popular freebies--probably because it is one of the easiest and simplest crafts to make, yet EVERY child feels successful when it's completed!

The flower pattern is intended to be simple enough and basic enough so that kids use their own creativity.

Let your kids be creative! Individual creativity and personalizing is up to your kiddos! There's room for them to improvise or add little extras. You may want to suggest adding stickers, glitter, stamping or gluing on colorful foam insects! You may even want to cut and curl the petals, for example! Trace the patterns on scrapbooking papers!

Or even try tempera painted or textured papers that you have collected to use as flower parts.

You can modify this pattern so it suits your age range.

The directions (and patterns) are for children who can read and follow directions at a third grade level.

For third graders, the direction page can serve as a procedure reading. Another idea is to have them create their flower and write their OWN procedure for creating a flower.

For younger children, the directions should be read by the teacher or parent.

There are 2 WAYS to make this:

1. Use the black and white outline patterns to copy onto sturdy paper your choice to make tracing templates. This paper could be ANY scrapbook papers, painted, or textured papers that you or the kids have collected.This way you are encouraging fine motor skills with a pencil AND cutting...if you have fancy papers, it's even more fun.

2. OR: Copy the petal pattern directly on colored construction paper--so kids can just cut out the petals. I've included separate pages for just petals so you can make lots of them in one color.

Remember to put in the surprise! The surprise is in the flower...a poem or special note. An optional stationery page is included for a note. Kids create a large flower with a special, handwritten note rolled up inside the stem (optional).They love the size of it when it's all finished.

For those just learning to write, their letter could be a picture of themselves (the sender) with "I love you!" (to the recipient).

Another fun "surprise" idea is to stuff a few chocolate kisses or other candies inside the rolled up letter that goes in the stem. (Give them an extra "kiss" so the kids can eat one, too.)

Say "Thank you", "Get well", "Happy Mother's Day", or a loving gift for Grandparents' Day. It's another way to say Happy Birthday", "Happy Valentine's Day", or "Happy Spring", too!

Your child(ren) can give this away as a creative alternative to a regular card. When they stand up on a window sill, they are extra cute, and you have an instant garden!

But I think the flower looks striking in a vase, too! It's amazing how one flower can be just as wonderful as a whole bouquet!

Included are:

-Directions and graphics


-Patterns for leaf, petals, center

-Adjective words that can be cut out and pasted onto the petals.

-Stationery for letter or note (optional)

My kids enjoyed making this...I hope yours do, too!

Remember, the degree of creativity is up to you and your students! :)
