Use construction paper and your imagination to create your own garden of shape flowers.  This cute shape flower craft is perfect for kids of all ages to do together.  Our older daughter liked coming up with shape combinations on her own and enjoyed cutting them out as well.  Our younger daughter liked putting the shapes together and seeing what they created.  You can keep the shapes simple for younger kids or add in some more difficult shapes to give kids a challenge.  We used a crescent, trapezoid, pentagon and diamond (rhombus) shapes as well as circles and triangles.  After our shape flower garden was finished we took turns playing “I spy” with the shapes.  This is a great shape craft and a great spring craft as well.

What you'll need:

  • Construction paper – all colors
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Optional: piece of poster board to create a garden on
