Making craft projects with children is a great way to involve children in fun activities. Daffodil crafts are a good option at any time of the year, especially during winter when there is snow outside and spring seems far away. A bright yellow daffodil flower can brighten the day. A foam daffodil takes only a few minutes to make, which is ideal for younger children with shorter attention spans.
Trace a quarter on the centre of the foam. This forms the inside of the daffodil. Around the circle draw six half-oval shapes that are about the same size as the circle. Daffodils have six petals.
Colour in the traced circle with orange paint or marker. The centre of the flower should end up darker than the flower petals.
Paint or colour the craft sticks green. The craft sticks form the stem and leaves of the daffodil. Use one for the stem and use the other one or two for leaves.
Cut the daffodil out of the foam. This allows time for the marker or paint to dry on the craft sticks.
Glue the craft stick to the back of the foam flower for the stem and then glue the other two sticks to the first. Allow the glue to dry.
