Daffodil Craft

We had our April Showers and then some and we’ve been waiting on our May Flowers.  We’ve had a few soggy buds but the lack of sunshine has delayed some of our blooms!

We did see the crocuses and the daffodils as spring sprung and we made this pretty daffodil out of a cardboard toilet tube.

Materials:

  • toilet paper tube
  • yellow and orange paint
  • green chenille stem
  • single hole punch
  • scissors

Directions:

1. Cut petals on one side of the tube, approximate three-quarters of the way down the length of the tube. Bend the petals so they spread out like a star.

2. Fringe-cut the other side of the tube and bend the fringe out.

3. Paint the petals yellow and the rest of the tub, including the fringe, orange.

4. Let dry and then punch a hole in the tube right below the fringe. Thread a chenille stem through the hole.

A Daffodil

A little yellow cup,
A little yellow frill,
A little yellow star,
And that’s a daffodil.

Educational Connections:

  • Science / Botany: Dissect a daffodil (pdf)
  • Language Arts: Read the Daffodil poem. What are the cup, frill, and star? Choose another flower and and write your own poem describing the shapes you see.
  • Science / Botany: Find out more about growing bulbs. Plan to plant bulbs in the fall or force bulbs indoors in the early spring.
  • History / Culture: The scientific name for the daffodil group of flowers is narcissus.  Read the legend of narcissus and find out why he was turned into a flower.

Picture Book Selection


My Spring Robin: Although this book is about a little girl looking for her spring robin, she encounters many other early signs of spring along the way, including a clump of daffodils. The book is simple but appealing to toddlers.

    Brilliant site – I would like to add it to one I just started if you approve
    I have put together a daily blog intended to be used as an additional study tool for you and your child. History, math, science, vocabulary, and geography are given every day many with a link to the document to study. I also have researched sources that I hope may be helpful to you as an aide for your child. The site is actually very child friendly in terms of use.
    I ask you to visit it and see what it has to offer. The first post “The Furniture of the Human Mind” will explain the site and hopefully you will look around.
    Thank You

  2. Great idea! I love how you reused the toilet paper roll. I have a bag of them sitting in my living room waiting to be dispensed. Here is a site with probably over 100 of them. It’s not my site but I always use it as a reference when thinking of arts and crafts for kids. http://www.dltk-kids.com/type/tp_roll.htm If you try any of the others let us know.

    I was moved enough to post a thought 😉 I
    actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of the remarks appear like written by brain dead people?
