This activity is a fine motor and writing activity that involves cutting out flowers and gluing them together into a bouquet. I have included some base paper that I have kids write their favorite things on the side to incorporate writing into the activity.
You could print the template one time onto card stock and then have the student trace it onto colored paper and cut it out. I decided to print mine onto colored paper so they were ready to be cut. I printed the flower template onto pink, red, and white paper. I also printed the leaf template onto green paper. I then cut around each one so that the student could decide which colors they wanted to use for each flower. I have included colored copies in case you want to print it out in color instead of printing on colored paper.
The student then cuts out the flowers and glues them on in layers of different colored flowers to make one multicolored flower.
It was easier for the students to copy flowers that I had made and my color pattern than it was for them to decide on their own color pattern. I had them glue their flowers onto their right side of the paper and then have them write something valentiney on the lines on the left side of the paper. I decided to have them be their own valentine and they had to write some things that they love about themselves. This would also be a great activity for mothers’ day, and for spring.
Included is white flowers, pink flowers, red flowers, white leaves, green leaves, and base paper.
