Be it spring or any other time of the year, flower crafts are fun for kids to make! We absolutely love making them, and have made quite a few already and for all ages too!
There are quite a few easy and quick crafts that focus on fine motor skills and are perfect for older toddlers, preschool and kids in kindergarten.
Lots of projects are suitable for older kids and kids at heart and are great both for classroom work (especially for those holiday themes you want the kids to make keepsakes for their parents) or for crafting at home.
Some of Our Latest Flower Crafts for Kids – Tutorials and Art Ideas
3D Construction Paper Flower Craft
One of our favorite flower crafts for kids to make, and one that we receive the most photos from our readers is this simple construction paper flower craft.
With simple strips of paper kids as young as preschool can create a wonderful bouquet of flowers.

Another of our favorites is this heart flower (hands down). You can make this one “freehand” or by using the template we made.
Not only is it insanely adorable, it can also hold a message inside which makes this the best card to give to someone important in your life.
Grab the template and make your own flower heart.
Wonderful Paper Sunflower
Who loves sunflowers? We do! This flower craft idea for kids to make is perfect for fall.
To make them even cuter, or personalized if you are making a gift for someone, why not print a picture of your kids or students and have their faces shine in the middle of the sunflower. Adorable.
Check how we made this sunflower craft.
Craft Sticks and Tissue Paper
Next on this list of flower craft projects are these tissue paper flowers.
You can make these in all the colors of the rainbow and even drop a little bit of perfume or oil on them to give them a nice smell.
Grab some tissue paper and make these wonderful flowers.
Why draw with crayons when you can get creative with yarn. Draw shapes with glue and fill them with yarn.
This project can be adapted for all age groups, you can have toddlers fill in predrawn shapes (even have them use pieces of cloth).
Kid Friendly String Art
Love string art? And your kids are into it too but you feel string isn’t their thing yet? Swap it up with yarn and make this a kid friendlier project.
A Bouquet of Flowers
This is a great classroom project for kids that already have good scissor skills. The end result is the most wonderful gift for parent’s or grandparents.
Who wouldn’t like to receive a wonderful bouquet along with a outline of their child’s hands?

Coloring and Pom Poms
Sometimes you just need a quick and easy crafting idea that can be both set up in no time and be completed without hassle. That’s where these come in, and they come with a template for kids to colour in.
Print the template, have the kids colour in the flowers however they like (we vote for watercolors), cut the flowers out if they are old enough and glue on yellow pom poms.
