  • Total Time: 60 mins
  • Skill Level: Kid-friendly

Maybe you have a backyard with grass and a vegetable garden, or maybe you maintain a mini plant haven on a fire escape or sunny windowsill. If you don’t have any real plants in your home or don’t really consider yourself to have a green thumb—try making these super cute pipe cleaner flowers. You can place them in a small planter on your desk or in your home, and let them bring you a little bit of joy and happiness.

Crafting with pipe cleaners is great for children of all ages. If you’re a parent of small children, chances are that you already have a bunch in your home. Young children can better develop their fine motor skills by twisting and bending them, and older children can get creative with how they build and create with them. This craft is best suited for children ages seven through 10. The best thing about growing these flowers is that they only require a few materials from your craft drawer.

Do you lack a green thumb? No problem! Try making these super cute fake pipe cleaner flowers for a fun and easy craft.
