Spring Springs

Spring Springs lesson plan

Create realistic flowers from construction paper and recycled items to show what you know about the parts of a flower.

  • 1.

    Find pictures of parts of a flower. Learn the names and purposes of each part. Find out how different flowers grow (bulbs, seeds, rhizomes) and in what climates.

  • 2.

    To make flowers: With Crayola® Scissors and construction paper, cut out flower parts for several different flowers. Choose various accurate shapes and colors for petals, pistils, stamens, and other parts. Glue to paper.

  • 3.

    Decorate flower parts with Crayola Construction Paper Crayons and Crayola Washable Glitter Glue.


  • Children identify different parts of a flower and demonstrate their knowledge by creating flowers with those characteristics.
  • Students artistically arrange their flowers in a vase they design.


  • Construct leaves, such as ferns, from construction paper, to add to your bouquet. Use a field guide or real-life plants for information about shapes, colors, and sizes.
  • Visit a greenhouse, garden, or farm to see how flowers are raised. What do flowers need to grow? How are such fragile items shipped?
  • Take a Flower Fragrance walk. Draw pictures of flowers that smell wonderfully, and those that have no smell at all. Can you find any that do not have a pleasant smell?
