Rampling mimosa

Glue small branch sausages to it. Then from the yellow squares (2x2 cm or 1.5x1.5 cm) roll the balls. Let the child first crumple the leaf, then begin to squeeze to crumple the corners, and only then twist the resulting lumps with his fingers.

The older the child, the smaller squares can be taken. Immediately cut out leaves from green paper, bend and cut into narrow strips. Glue a few leaves to the branches, place mimosa balls on top of them. They can be glued with a second layer.

  2. You also make a tight roll, which thenslightly push forward, forming a cup.
  3. Cut a strip of yellow paper into narrow segments. Then you wind it in a tight roll, glue the end, and shake the strips well. The result was a blossoming flower.

On a skewer wrapped in green corrugated paper, glue the flowers made according to the third method. At the same time, some balls are very fluffy, some retain the shape of a bud. Glue mimosa tightly to each other on a stick from all sides.
