This creative make will help to develop your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they carefully fold the paper backwards and forwards and then separate the sheets out to create the rose. It's quite a complicated task for a young child, so you'll have to read the instructions and help them with the folding. Give your child plenty of encouragement and praise along the way to spur them on!
How to extend the magic
Why not make a multi-coloured bunch of these lovely paper roses? You could make them in tissue paper if you don't have crepe paper. You could stand them in a pot (with a little modelling clay in the bottom to push the pipe cleaners into). One final touch - give them a little squirt of perfume to make them smell nice!
