This flower bouquet project is part of our new series of easy crafts for kids, and takes about 5 minutes to set up and encourages children to make aesthetic choices. We also love this flower bouquet because it’s…

  • Mess-free
  • Supports fine-motor skills
  • Turns into a one-of-a-kind bouquet for gifting

Simple Pipe Cleaner Flower Bouquet | Easy Crafts for Kids

This project was actually born out of my daughter’s own cure for boredom, and it’s since become one of our favorite easy crafts for kids. A stack of pipe cleaners (or chenille stems — which word do you prefer?) sat out on our art table for a week, They were turned into all sorts of projects, and then one day she decided to stick buttons and jingle bells on the ends of them. After making a small handful, it became apparent that she has created a bouquet.

It’s easy enough to make, and occupied my pre-schooler for a long while. I hope you’ll enjoy it too!

    Oh thanks this such a cute idea I was looking for some simple pipe cleaner ideas to play with my toddlers. So simple but effective and looks like it involves threading skills too.

    Such a sweet idea! I am always looking for quick crafts to do with Ethan (now that I’ve got another little one to occupy) and this sounds perfect :)

    Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but
    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking
    at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point
    me in the direction of a good platform.
