Kids Frugal Fun-How To Make Pen Flowers

Each week I bring you a kids craft that is fun, educational, and frugal. Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Day are both this week and this craft is one I always did in my classroom and it never loses popularity.

If you’ve missed any previous crafts, check out Momondealz’s Kids Frugal Fun page.

Remember, if you love any of my crafts, be sure to Pin them on Pinterest!

Pen Flowers

Fake Flowers
Floral Tape
Flower Pot
Glass Rocks/Stones

1.  Have your child decorate the flower pot according to the recipient (you can’t tell but ours says “Mommom”)  If you’re making for a teacher you can put the message “Thanks for making me bloom with learning!”

2.  Break off the lower stems on the flowers.
3.  Using the floral tape, attach the flowers to your pens.

4.  Fill the pot with the glass rocks/stones and stick the pen flowers inside.

Educational Activities:
Science:  Discuss the plant cycle with your child or talk about the needs of plants.  The books Plants Are Living Things (Introducing Living Things)and How a Seed Grows (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)are great children’s books about plants!
