Heart Paper Flower Craft

As a parent of a kindergarten, preschool or daycare child, you often have opportunities to express your gratitude to their teachers for their love and care in the school.

This could be more formal in the form of teacher appreciation days or casual when you feel like it. Teachers work very hard to take care of our children and they deserve our unreserved appreciation.

Easy paper flower preschool crafts

Last week was bring a flower day at our daughter's preschool, this mother-daughter duo decided to make this very lovely heart flower paper craft. We loved how easy and elegant these ended-up looking.

They were easy and quick to make and after the paper cutting something our daughter could put together on her own. She quite enjoyed putting the paper hearts and pipe cleaners together for the beautiful look. Our daughter took these to school in the morning and gave a flower to each of her teachers with a thank you hug!

Try these out and see your child's teacher feel appreciated.
