Pot of Hyacinths

by Daniel on March 2nd, 2012

What you’ll need:
Hyacinth patterns
5-inch x 12-inch sheets of blue, orange or pink paper
Blue, orange or pink paper for flowerets
Small sheet of yellow paper
Hole punch
Tracing paper
Brown and green paper
Frozen juice can or clay flower pot
Glue

Background:
This art project can help children gain an appreciation for flowers. As you are assembling the pot, ask children to name and describe the different shapes and parts of a plant. Makes a lovely centerpiece for a springtime table.

What to do:
1. Fold one sheet of the 5″ x 12″ paper into fourths lengthwise. Glue one end flap over the other to form a triangular tube. Set aside to dry.

2. Trace the flowerlet pattern and cut it out.

3. Outline 15 flowerlets on paper of the same color as the triangular tube.

4. Cut out the flowerlets and fold up the edges.

5. Spread a thin layer of glue on the upper half of the triangular stem, one side at a time. Stick five flowerlets along each side.

6. Punch out 15 yellow dots and glue one in the center of each flowerlet.

7. Trace the leaf pattern and cut it out. Outline 2 leaves on green paper and cut them out.

8. Make another hyacinth stem, if desired.

9. Glue brown paper around the juice can to make a vase or place flowers in clay flower pot.
