Pipe Cleaner and Pony Bead Flower

My daughter has really been into gardening and flowers lately so I surprised her with this fun flower craft!

Est. Time:
<1 hour

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. pipe cleaners
  2. scissors
  3. pony beads
  1. Start by making the stem for your flower. My daughter chose a green pipe cleaner. Next, I cut two additional pipe cleaners in half and twisted them onto the green stem, one by one. Then, my daughter set to work stringing pony beads on the petals.

  2. This was a great fine motor activity and my daughter was able to string the beads on herself!

  3. When you have enough beads on, twist the pipe cleaner into a petal shape.

  4. Keep stringing and twisting! My daughter wanted four petals total and was very focused on her work.

  5. After you are done twisting on the petals, take time to stop and "smell" the flowers!
