Make Valentine lollipop flowers

Lollipop Flowers
Lollipop flowers are a cute Valentine’s Day craft, so H and I set about making some on Friday. Unfortunately, the steps can be tricky for little hands so we modified the project to make it toddler friendly. Here’s what we did, so your little one can make a bunch:

You’ll need:

- Lollipops
- Coloured paper (we used pink and green)
- Cupcake liners (we used pink and green)
- Scissors
- Hole punch
- Tape
- Glue

Directions:

Lollipop Flower Steps I
Step one:
Take a piece of paper, fold sides into centre and then fold in half (as shown).

Step two:
Cut a half heart shape along the folded side of the paper. Repeat.

Step three:
Unfold hearts. Stack and hole punch at the bottom of the heart.

Thread three hearts onto each lollipop stick.

Step five:
Carefully thread a cupcake liner onto the end of the lollipop stick and secure underside with tape.
