There are so many cool crafts you can make with paper, and this Calla Lily Craft for Kids is one of my favorites. It is great for older kids, who may think of other crafts as being too “babyish” for them. I think these would be so pretty affixed to a gift. You can make them in a variety of colors and assemble a beautiful bouquet that never needs watering!

Calla Lily Craft for Kids
You will need:
Colored craft papers
To make this calla lily craft for kids, download, print and cut out this template. Pick the colors of craft paper you will be using for the flowers. Use green paper for stem and leaves and yellow for the stamen. Trace the rectangular pattern and the zigzag patterns on the green craft paper and the ‘i’ shaped pattern on yellow craft paper. Trace the flower pattern on any color of craft paper you chose for the flower. Cut out the traced patterns with scissors.
Take the rectangular paper you cut out and roll it from an end to create the stem pattern. Apply glue at the end of the rolled paper to secure it.
Next, take the cut out flower paper and apply glue along the bottom curve. Place the flower on a flat surface and place the stem on the bottom side of the flower pattern as shown in the photo below.
Pick up both pieces from the previous step carefully, so they stay together. Fold up the left side of the flower pattern and attach it to the stem.
Now, fold up the right side of the flower pattern and attach it to the left side of the flower pattern.
Press the bottom parts to make sure that they’re glued nicely.
Take the yellow ‘i’ shaped stamen pattern and glue it inside the flower, with the round part facing up.
To make the leaves on the stem, take the green zigzag cut outs and attach them to the stem, below the flower, using craft glue.
Allow the glue to dry and enjoy your Calla Lily Craft for Kids!

If you are looking for more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution. Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
