Sorting colours tissue paper flower learning craft
This activity was totally cute and terribly easy to set up. These rascals were busy, and almost quiet! They were absolutely engaged, independent and loving it. So much so they both 'asked!' to do it a second time.
You could do this with any age really. Even little ones who aren't into colour sorting will still enjoy scrunching up squares of tissue into tight balls and pressing them into the toilet roll petals. As long as you are happy that PVA glue is used and there's a chance, if you don't keep your eye...like with one of my rascals, that they might lick glue of their finger; then go gold! The glue says it's non toxic, and is sold as school glue.
You really don't need me to explain how this is done. It's as simple as toilet paper rolls flattened and cut into rings, then glued to a sheet of paper. We painted the glue into the base of the petals; something the kids loved being able to do for themselves. To make this colour sorting, we used pens to colour code each petal. Scrunching up paper is a great fine motor, hand muscle exercise for little hands.
I'd love to hear from you if you've ever tried this and what other activities like this your kids love. Have you checked out our Facebook page or Pinterest account? Come on over!
