I am busy working away putting together a bunch of Valentine themed activities for my kids. Some activities are Montessori so that is no big thing. On the other hand, I am venturing down that crafty road again, and, well, my brain hurts. I am not sure why I was never into crafts because I am certainly driven to them now. I have a few new Valentine themed crafts to share with you in the coming weeks. For now, check out the below round up to learn how to make a paper rose & loads of other Rose Crafts & Activities for Kids.
How to Make a Paper Rose & Other Rose Crafts & Activities for Kids
Did you know that you could make a crystal rose with a real rose? This activity is creative, artistic, and involves a ton of science learning. Learn the directions here.
Paper Rose Craft
Learn how to make a paper rose from Dreamy Posy. She gives step by step instructions and FREE tempates! The craft involves a spiral. So, there is an immediate connection to math. Plus, cutting and rolling the paper is great fine motor work for children.
Giant Crepe Paper Rose
This Giant Crepe Paper Rose looks a bit daunting but would be a perfect crafts for older children. I took a look at the tutorial and besides garnering enough patience, the activity looks reasonable and gorgeous! How beautiful would these Giant Roses look around a classroom?
Egg Carton Roses
Using recycled materials is always a hit with children. Creating roses is a wonderful way to use up all those leftover egg cartons. Mom to 2 Posh Divas shows us just how much fun and creative you can be by creating an Egg Carton Rose Crown.
Paper Plate Roses
Paper plates don't get any more easy and inexpensive! This Paper Plate Rose activity from Kids Activities Blog is simple to set up and even easier to execute. Children love to be creative with displaying the roses.
Felt Rose Activity
What a beautiful Felt Rose activity and tutorial offered from Love of Family and Home. I enjoy experimenting with different materials. In this case, we have felt versus paper, card stock, or tissue paper. The author adds tips that really pay off. I like the idea of using felt but I always have difficultly cutting felt. Any tips?
Watercolor Rose on Canvas
This Watercolor Rose activity from Deborah at Learn with Play at Home caught my eye immediately. So simple and beautiful. This particular activity is not specifically for Valentine's Day but it can certainly be applied for the special people in your child's life.
Create Rainbow Roses
This science experiment is a joy to do with children. This post gives a decent overview of how to create Rainbow Roses. The post gives you a sense of where to go with it. Children will be mesmerized by the beautiful colors. Teachers will love all the science learning to be had from the Rainbow Rose experiment.
This activity is similar to a few listed here but totally knocked my socks off. The look of these Magazine Roses are vintage and would add a ton to any home or classroom decor. Easy approach and a wonderful finished product the kids and adults will adore!
Hershey Kiss Roses
Super easy to put together, these Hershey Kiss Roses are sure to be a hit with the kids! You have to scroll about halfway down the original post to get to this idea. I thought it was cute. Make a bouquet or simply one or two flowers with pipe cleaners and you have yourself a creative Valentine.
Duct Tape Roses
These Duct Tape Roses look super cool. I will say that the tutorial may be a bit above a preschoolers head but it will certainly grab the attention of an older child. This tutorial from Instructables.com is straightforward. I am going to give it a whirl this coming week!
Have fun and let me know how it goes! 🙂
