Originally I had planned to make some nice springtime pictures to brighten up the playroom wall, but we ended up turning them into Mothering Sunday cards. As Mothering Sunday has now passed you could do them as they were intended or make them into a different type of card like a birthday, thank you or Happy Easter one. What ever you decide to do with them, they are guaranteed to brighten up any wall, fridge or shelf.

To make your own tulip pictures you will need:

1. Cut out your tulip template and then draw round it onto your coloured card, then cut out.

2. Glue your popsicle stick to your paper and then glue the tulip centre on top.

I did this on an afternoon when my eldest charge was unfortunately unwell and off school, this craft turned out to be a good quiet one for him to do. So if you have a poorly little one at home, and they are fed up, then this maybe the activity to help keep them entertained, without them having to exert too much energy.
