Crafts for Kids: A Bouquet of Paper Hyacinths

This summer the girls and I have spent a lot of time doing arts and crafts. I have been meaning to post these projects for ages. A lot of what we have been doing has been done with materials, such as colored construction paper, that you can find very easily at a stationary store. There is a tutorial for these super easy paper flowers at Origami Mommy. Even D (3.75) was able to make these with very little help (the pink one on the far right is hers).

Not only did the girls have fun making these they had a lot of fun playing with them. I don't thing that we have ever made something that we have gotten so much playtime out of.

What a great project! I've also been enjoying our "home camping," but arts and crafts aren't one of my better skills. Next year I look forward to changing that. We did make some yummy treats and are in the process of making and freezing yom tov soups.
I read a book called The Creative Family: How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections by Amanda Soule this spring and it really changed my life. The arts and crafts thing is all new to me.
