Aren't these daffodils pretty? Welcome spring (or St David's Day) with this pretty bunch of handmade daffodils - an easy craft for kids of all ages.
We have a special flower peg board which we used for this design, but you could use a set of four square peg boards linked together if necessary. This is a daffodil, but you could make all sorts of pretty flowers by varying the colours. A line of them along a windowsill would look lovely!
You will need a large six pointed star base for this daffodil. It is simply made with yellow and orange fuse beads, but it can be tricky to count so it is best for older kids. When you have ironed the daffodil and it has cooled, you could attach a pin to the back to make a pretty daffodil badge.

Painted flower pots are simple to do and not exactly original - but they always go down well on Mother's Day, Grandparent's Day, or just as a rainy day activity - especially if you pot them up with some seeds or a little plant too!
Get creative with our painted wellies! This is a lovely way to update old Wellingtons and would be a nice way to personalise hand-me-downs. The result is not permanent. Designs can be removed whenever you want with nail varnish remover or will chip off after about a month.
Here's a fun way to give a gift with a hidden surprise! Make them with your little ones for Spring, Easter or Mother's Day... they are a super classroom take-home activity for Mother's Day in particular.
These pipe cleaner daffodils are really fun to make. Twirling the pipe cleaners was a good exercise for little fingers, but some adult help was needed with younger children when it came to putting the daffodils together.
The photo doesn't really do this pretty pipe cleaner flower card justice I'm afraid! Playing with pipe cleaners is a lovely activity for little hands but younger children may need some help putting the petals together.
This lovely craft idea can be undertaken in one go as a project on the seasons - or in four parts over the year as each season arrives. However you choose to do it, the canvases make an eye-catching display.
