100 days of play: Simple Toffee wrapper flowers
I am so happy to participate in the 100 days of PLAY challenge, hosted by Sun Scholars. If you have been following along, you will already have some fun, simple activities to do with your kiddos. Even though Aarya’s absolute favorite activity is to ride the bike in the house, outside… everywhere..
Today I am going to share a very simple activity which include toffee wrappers. If like us you have some lovely Uncles visiting, chances are they will bring chocolates for the kiddos among other things. So when Aarya’s Uncle brought him this, he was excited for obvious reasons.
We had so many colorful wrappers left that I thought they would lovely in a project. So here is what we did with them –
Things we used –
Wrappers of different colors (ours were mainly violet, orange and yellow)
Over-enthusiastic kiddo 🙂
1. We “thread” the tissue papers into the pipe cleaners. It is very easy, you just push the pipe cleaner around the middle ( our papers were square- cut)
2. Push in as many as you want. (Minimum would be 2)
3) Keeping a portion of the pipe cleaner on top. scrunch up the paper together and “wrap” the pipe cleaner around the bunch. This will make a lovely flower look with the pipe cleaner as the stem. (Aarya struggled with this part, so I did this after he threaded the papers. Older kiddos would be able to do this easily.)
Make as many as you like 🙂 And put them in the Vase along with your favorite pic 🙂 I also added some twisted pipe cleaners to the vase.
Thank you Rachel for including us in this fantastic series.
