Kid’s craft: Wacky daffodils for Mother’s Day
As an avid baker, I have muffin cup liners for every season and occasion.
Inevitably, there are a few of each pattern left over from a batch of cupcakes.
Why not let the kids use them to make a bouquet of flowers for mom this Mother’s Day?
Daffodils are a sure sign of spring and these little, bopping buds will make her smile.
- Standard and mini size muffin cup liners
- Green pipe cleaners
- Small white pom-poms
- Glue (white tacky glue or Mod Podge works best)
- Pencil, if needed
- Fold standard size muffin cup liner in half, three times.
- Cut into a curved point, stopping about halfway down.
- Unfold completely and flatten with pattern side up.
- Glue a mini muffin cup liner to the center. Let dry.
- Glue 1-3 (depending on size) pom-poms to the end of a pipe cleaner. Let dry
- Push the opposite end of the pipe cleaner through the center of glued muffin cup liners. (Use a pencil to start the hole if needed.)
- Pull pipe cleaner through until the pom-poms are in the center of the mini-muffin cup liner and bend approximately 1 inch from the back.
Repeat as many times as you would like to create a bouquet.
