Tissue paper flowers that dont smell of tissue or flowers
Cut out two circles of tissue paper in different colours, one slightly smaller than the other, plus one circle of yellow or orange tissue whilst your child asks if its ready yet over and over again.
Make a cup of tea and put your feet up.
It is ready now. Hand over the circles plus glue, glitter, sequins - anything you fancy really and allow them to get to work. Glue the smaller circle on to the larger one, scrunch the yellow into some sort of ball and glue to the middle. Add as much glitter and other junk as needed to make the worlds most freaky flower. Pinch behind the yellow tissue and set to the side to dry. Repeat.
Once they have the hang of flower making there is no end of things they can do with these. Stick to the front of a card, add to ribbon for floral bunting, use on gifts...because, after all, you can never have too many baskets
