Finger Print Vase and Photo Flowers

Keep little ones busy with this fun kids craft

 

A bouquet of these cute flowers inspired by Kaboose.com would make a great end-of-year teacher gift. If you don’t have photos of the whole class, your kids can color the rest of the flowers.

For the paper flowers:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Family photos cropped into circles.
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Green pipe cleaners

For the finger print vase:

  • Glass vase (you can pick one up at a dollar store)
  • Enamel paints

What you need to do:

  1. Prepare the glass vase by making sure it is clean, dry and label-free.
  2. To make the painted flowers, carefully dip fingertips into the paint. Dot on the glass to form flower shapes, using alternate colors for the petals.
  3. Set the vase aside and let dry according to the directions on the paint bottle.
  4. Meanwhile, cut simple flower shapes out of construction paper.
  5. Cut photos into small circles. Glue each photo circle to the center of a flower.
  6. Tape a green pipe cleaner to the back of each flower.
  7. Trim the pipe cleaners as needed to fit the fingerprint vase.
