I love this craft not only is it beautiful and uses common materials, it's great fine motor skill practice too!

You will need markers, glue, tissue paper, a paper plate , scissors and ribbon.

Start by coloring your flower ( paper plate)

Next rip small pieces of tissue paper off and crumple into balls ( thyis was the kids favorite part).

Glue the tissue paper balls in the middle.

Cut the ribbon into short pieces and glue along the edge.

Let dry.
