Here's a step by step drawing tutorial to teach chidlren how to draw their own thistle, with tips for colouring it in too.
Learn To Draw A Thistle
Use this thistle template for our thistle crafts - or with your own ideas. One simple idea to use the template: children could colour in the leaves and then scrunch up tissue paper to make the stem and flower.
Print and cut out this thistle jigsaw using our jigsaw cutting guides. It only takes a moment and you can adapt the jigsaw to the age of your child, then store it in an envelope or ziploc bag for repeat use. Fun for a Scotland theme!
