So to celebrate the start of Spring I've got an awesome collection of flower arts and crafts from some fantastic kid bloggers. I've organised them (roughly) into ages, but of course your little one will probably need a bit of assistance and guidance.
All images used with permission. Thank you contributors!
I've got the love heart eyes for these collages!
There's lots of paint stamping, handprints, footprints and egg cartons in this collection. Miss M and I are keen to give the egg carton flowers a go! Will be sure to share when we do :)

I just adore Eric Carle's illustrations, and a painted collage is a lovely way to re-create his famous pictures (just allow enough time for your paint to dry before you cut!). The bubble hydrangeas look super fun too!

How stunning are these projects? So many creative ideas from some talented kid bloggers! The pipe cleaner threading flowers would be great for fine motor development, and my favourite of this ENTIRE collection is the simple black/white hand drawn flowers on the water colour background.
