Whether your little ones are budding artists or nature enthusiasts, this roundup of flower crafts and activities is sure to ignite their creativity and bring the joy of the outdoors indoors!

Flower Activities for Kids

Flower crafts offer a wonderful opportunity for children to explore the wonders of nature while expressing their artistic talents. These crafts not only encourage fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination but also teach children about different types of flowers, their colors, shapes, and textures. Let their imagination bloom as they create stunning paper flowers using colored tissue paper or construct beautiful bouquets using pipe cleaners, construction paper, and pom-poms. They can even design unique flower crowns or pressed flower art that showcases the beauty of nature’s masterpieces. These crafts provide a fantastic way to engage children in sensory play and foster their appreciation for the natural world.

Apart from being visually appealing, flower-themed activities can also introduce children to concepts such as gardening, science, and even culinary arts. Get your green thumbs ready by involving your kids in planting and tending to their own flower garden. Teach them about different types of flowers, their life cycles, and the importance of sunlight and water for their growth. Additionally, explore the science behind flower pigments by conducting experiments with food coloring and white flowers, observing how the petals change color. For a delectable twist, embark on a floral culinary adventure by making edible flower treats like flower-shaped cookies or floral-infused ice cubes. These activities encourage children to engage with nature in a hands-on and immersive way, fostering a deeper understanding and connection with the natural world.

In this blog post, we have curated an enchanting collection of flower crafts and activities that will inspire your little ones to embrace their creativity, explore nature’s wonders, and enjoy the beauty of flowers in a variety of ways. So gather your art supplies, put on your gardening gloves, and let the petals lead you on a blooming journey of imagination and discovery!

I’m so excited to share my crafting TV show Curious Crafting which launched in July 2022 on TVOkids and TVOkids YouTube! Season 2 aired in August 2023! My show was also nominated in 2023 for Best Live Action Preschool Series by the Youth Media Alliance Awards of Excellence.

Curious Crafting Season 1 is also now airing in Australia on ABC! Watch it here!

Set in the ultimate crafting space, Curious Crafting is a short form pre-school age series about the joy of making crafts. I lead a rotating cast of adorable little preschoolers (including my own) making magic out of common household objects.

In each episode we transform recycled items into magical crafts like a milk carton school bus, paper bag puppet or cotton pad turtle. The crafters learn and laugh their way through each activity while demonstrating what their young imaginations can create. 

Curious Crafting shares the adventure and joy of making art with takeaway lessons for creating crafts at home.

This show designed for toddlers and preschoolers 2.5 years old and up.
