A fun art project for kids and students of all ages.

These paper plate flowers can be turned into beautiful wall art, hanging party decorations or be attached to greeting cards!

Older kids can get into the detail and paint intricate designs whereas the younger kids will get scissor practice which helps strengthen fine motor skills needed for proper pencil grip and handwriting! 

TIP: make sure the petals feature contrasting patterns and colours for a more striking effect!
