Tulip Craft Success

Categories: Art & Fine Motor | Spring

As part of our planting unit, we did this great tulip craft last week! I really wish I could take credit for this obscenely adorable creation but of course not. Who needs self made creativity when there is pinterest? Man – has pinterest made me laaaazy! I used to at least try to think of my own crafts but now… yea right! Why reinvent the wheel when everyone has already thought of an even easier and more amazing wheel?

This creation was born from Blog Me Mom. She is kinda brilliant because all – that’s right I said all – of my students’ crafts turned out freaken awesome. No behavior problems. No pintastrohies. No paint in the hair. Just a bunch of cute as a button crafts, some happy preteens, and an even happier teacher! 🙂

The tulips are made with a fork! My kids thought this was hilarious! Great fine motor task.

After we painted all of our tulips, we added the stems.

For some of my students, I added a visual cue by drawing the lines in pencils for my students to trace.

Then we cut snips in green paper for the grass – more great fine motor building!
