Flower craft – our noses – we are wonderfully made!

This is an idea for under threes. Older children could also do this but it’s suitable for very young children.
You will need:
Coloured paper – flower colours
A4 sugar paper – blue
Green card
Perfumed spray
Glue sticks

You will need to print flower outlines on to coloured paper and then cut these out. Use green card to make stems and simple leaves.
To give the flowers a scent spray them with perfume. I did this the night before and again before the children arrived. Don’t use perfumed spray once the children are there as it wouldn’t be good for asthmatics.

Make a picture yourself to give the children an idea of what to do.

When you lay out the craft don’t put out everything out at once as young children can enthusiastically use everything up!

This craft was followed by a short story time thanking God for our noses. I had a bag of different smelly items for the children to smell – a sock, lavender, ground coffee and onions cut in half and in a bowl. Our focus was on the bible verse ‘I am wonderfully made’ Psalm 139:14.

Get the children to point to their nose and to take some breaths. Sing ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes.’
