3 FANTASTIC FLOWERS TO MAKE FOR MOTHER’S DAY

fantastic flowers picture

Welcome to another Wacky Workshops project – fantastic flowers you can make for Mother’s Day.

 The tradition of giving gifts, including flowers, on Mother’s Day began in the early 19th century in America.

Some believe flowers became a preferred gift as the day coincided with America’s spring when all the beautiful flowers are out.

One of the most traditional flowers to give is the carnation, which represents love and gratitude.

In Australia, Mother’s Day falls in autumn and the chrysanthemum is the favoured flower to give, mainly because it’s in season.

Kids love that the name contains the word ‘mum’ and the flower represents cheerfulness.

There are around 600,000 known flowering plants in the world. Do know what your favourite flower symbolizes?

Welcome to another Wacky Workshops project.

I love flower pens. It’s hard to be unhappy when you’re writing with something so pretty and they are loads of fun to make. I saw one in a shop years ago and figured I could do that and I have many times. It has always been a big hit during my classes as well.

So I figured it would be a must to make these for the flower themed birthday party I was hosting. Then I decided to incorporate them in a lolly bag with a difference. Stay tuned and I’ll tell all.
