Mother's Day Flowers
Here's a super fast idea if you're stuck for a Mother's Day gift and fancy getting your kids to make something for their mum or gran. It'll save nipping down the garage on Sunday morning and buying a bunch of soggy brown flowers. All you need is some coloured tissue paper, sellotape, and some sticks from the garden or park.
To give it a go, cut your stick to a bloom sized length and then show your kids how to bunch, wrap, tear and shape the tissue paper into blooms at the top of the stick. Finally simply tape it into place. They can then experiment to create different shapes and blends of colours to create a bunch to delight.
