How to create a Spring Daffodil Picture

2. With the orange paper cut out a wide strip and into smaller sections these will make the trumpets for the daffodils.

3. Then cut with the scissors up a little to form a feature like effect. Just snip the length of the scissor blade.

5. Now it is time to assembly, start by sticking the stems and petals onto the picture.

6. Then roll the orange feathered paper to form a trumpet shape and fold down one end.

Read to Extend the Learning

Why not extend the activity by picking up some of these fabulous books.

  • We love the book Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt by Kate Messner it’s perfect for any garden connection and focuses on what happens above and below the soil throughout the seasons of the year.
  • Flower Garden by Eve Bunting shows that you can have a garden even in the smallest spaces. We love the spring colours and flowers you can see in the book and the wonderful rhymes
  • One that we reach throughout the year is Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. I love how it talks about flowers and colours and the way that you grow the gaden throughout the seasons.
  • Another favourite that we have on our nature table throughout the year is Spring by Gerda Muller. We have the whole series and exchange them as the seasons change and spend time looking through the beautiful illustrations talking about how throughout the pages new things happen and are celebrated.
