Here's a lovely, messy craft for little kids - and the result does look a little like a thistle! How about making a class-full of these, cutting them out and using them to decorate the bottom of the notice-board with a field of thistles?
We hope that this lovely collection of thistle crafts will get you inspired. They are perfect for any Scottish theme, and we've tried to provide something that's suitable for a wide range of ages.
Here's a fun craft for little ones, perfect for a Scottish theme. If you paint the plate first and leave it in a warm place to dry, it might even be ready by the time you have the handprints drawn and cut out.
This simple felt sewing project produces a thistle brooch that any Scot would be proud to wear!
