It may be a wee bit to close to the zero-degree mark right now for anyone to really be thinking Spring. But, around our house, we are working hard on ditching the snowflakes and any remnants of Winter and willing Spring into being.
Cherry blossoms are one of my favorite signs of Spring on the West Coast and with the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival only weeks away, I figured we could bring a little blossom inside the house while we await the true blooms.
This is an easy craft, perfect for preschoolers yet pretty enough to hang and give older kids a reason to join in.
Here’s what you need:
- Pink craft paper
- A brown crayon
- pink and white tissue paper
- Glue stick
- Wooden skewer or chop stick
- Hot glue
1. Take the craft paper and crayon. Draw a tree silhouette.
2. Cut and scrunch up bits of tissue paper. Glue them on the tree.
3. Take your skewer or chop stick and hot glue it to the top of the page to make a hanger. Tie twine on either end and hot glue to secure it.
There you have it, a pretty cherry blossom to brighten your walls while waiting out these last few weeks of Winter.
