Pretty Paper Blooms

alex-giant-paper-flowers.jpgThis spring-like weather is utterly delicious, and if your kids want to create colorful flowers to match (while nature catches up), consider this Alex Toys Giant Paper Flowers Kit. My in-laws got this kit for Laurel and she loves the resulting pretty paper blooms. The kit includes an impressive quantity of colorful, decorative-edged tissue paper sheets + pipe cleaners (enough to make 30 flowers). Simply stack and accordion fold the paper, twist fasten with pipe cleaners, and fluff the flowers. It's a lovely, creative, and affordable away to have flowers all year long.
