Last week I bought some lovely looking ribbon and my daughter has been dying to use it but she could not figure out what to do with it. Then while I was tidying up some of our education supplies she spotted our pipe cleaner Christmas wreath and she informed me that we should make a spring ribbon wreath.
We started off our usual way of cutting our paper plates and my daughter painted them green again (this is an old photo from an earlier post but just wanted to show how we cut the plates).
Then we threaded the bits of ribbon around our wreath. We used sticky tape to attach the ribbon to the back of the wreaths.
She wanted to add some flowers. So I printed off on of the free flower colouring sheets from Twinkl (she actually only used page 4 for her wreath – although she did use 3 copies of that page). She really tried hard with her flowers.
And once they were cut out
I love the end result – so bright and cheerful. And a bonus for me was it ended up being a great fine motor activity for my daughter.
