Children can pick flowers from outside, but it’s more fun to make their own from scratch.
 
What You’ll Need:
Newspaper
Crepe paper
Egg carton
White paper or string
Sellotape
 
The Game:
  • Twist a sheet of newspaper into a tight rod. Cover this with a length of green crepe paper and secure at the top and base with small squares of sellotape.
  • Separate the egg carton into separate cups and colour these in a variety of colours.
  • Cut five or six slits into each cup and bend the cardboard outwards slightly to create petals.
  • Secure the egg cup flowers to the newspaper stems.
  • Fill cups or vases with flowers. One child then acts as the florist and the others are customers.
  • The customers pick out the flowers they like and the florist makes bouquets using paper or string.
