Trace your child's hand three times on colored paper. I used scrapbook paper, but you could also use construction paper. Cut them out and curl each finger around a pencil. Glue the palm edges together.
Glue each flower to a drinking straw, preferably green. If you have pipe cleaners, cut off a 1 inch piece, fold in half and stick into top of straw for the stamen.
Cut leaf shapes out of your paper and make a hold in the center, then poke your straw through.
Now, you can put your flowers in a vase or a glass, or if you have some little pots (like we did), you could hot glue them in that. Voila!
