Last week the first flowers in our yard popped through the ground and bloomed. And my preschooler then went on to pick them for me.

Those flowers inspired this activity which mixes color matching with a simple spring flower craft that brightens up the house (without picking my only flowers)!

Spring color matching activity with flower petals -- and make pretty flowers!

What You’ll Need:

  • buttons or pom poms in various colors
  • construction paper in the same colors of button (or pom poms)
  • scissors
  • school glue

Prepare the Activity:

  1. Gather supplies.
  2. Cut various shapes of flower petals from construction paper.

The Flower Petal Color Matching Activity:

I invited my preschooler to do this activity with me. He made one flower at a time.

First he glued on a button. And then collected all the flower petals that matched the color of the button.

Match colors of flower petals to their centers

Before gluing, he wanted to arrange them around the button first. And then he glued each petal one by one.

He repeated that process with every color of flower, matching each color petal to the button center.

As a finishing touch, he wanted to draw green stems, leaves, grass (and roots!) for each flower.

I think the result turned out magnificent! Perfectly imperfect, I believe.
