Mother’s Day Activity – Tissue Flower Bouquet

Looking for an arts and crafts activity for your students to celebrate Mother’s Day? Here is an easy Mother’s Day activity for elementary school students that requires few materials – tissue paper, green construction paper, and a glue stick! You’ll also need a pencil, ruler, and scissors too. The flower bouquet is easy to create and can be completed in several steps.

Step 1 – Get 4 sheets of 8″ x 11″ green construction paper. —Make sure to have two shades of green (ex: 2 light green papers, 2 dark green papers)
