Children’s paper crafts for March 8 8

This butterfly craft is a fun activity for kids in the spring or any time of the year. Using your child’s handprint turns an ordinary craft into a cherished treasure for years to come. No mother wants to forget how small her child’s hands once were.

Materials:

  • different colored cardboard (of your choice);
  • green cardboard;
  • a pair of eyes for toys;
  • black marker;
  • scissors;
  • glue stick;
  • pencil.

How to make a butterfly

  1. Trace your child’s hand on two different colors of paper. Repeat again to get 4 handprints.
  2. Cut out a circle for the head and an elongated oval for the body of the butterfly from green cardboard. Make sure it’s long enough to reach the bottom of the child’s palms. Cut out two small ovals for the butterfly’s whiskers.
  3. Position one palm pattern so that the thumb is pointing up and the others are to the side and slightly turned outward. Take the other color hand drawing and position it in the same way, but this time turn the hand down.
  4. Glue the palms together where they intersect. Repeat with the opposite side. You have butterfly wings.
  5. Take both wings with the undersides of the palms inward, overlap them lightly and glue them together.
  6. Assemble the body of the butterfly by gluing the antennae to the back of the round head. Glue the finished head to the top of the green body.
  7. Place a large oval in the middle of the wings and glue.
  8. Glue the eyes to the head and draw a smile under the eyes with a black marker.
  9. If you want to add more detail to the butterfly, cut out small circles and glue to the wings.

Tulip origami

Children’s paper crafts for March 8 14

Tulips have become part of the celebration of International Women’s Day. It is these delicate buds that are mainly received as a gift by women and girls on March 8th. Children can also give mom a bouquet of origami tulips.

What will you need

  • colored paper;
  • scissors.

Manufacturing technique:

  1. Measure and cut the purple and pink paper into 12x12cm squares. Depending on how many flowers you will be making, you will need one 12x12cm square for each flower.
  2. Fold the paper in half along both diagonal axes. Bend it gently to find the middle of the triangle, as you will use it as a guide for the next steps.
  3. Fold one side to make a triangle, then fold both sides to make a tulip petal. Use the crease as a guide so you don’t touch the tip of the triangle.
  4. Flip the tulip over, then bend the ends at the corners on both sides so they look like a hexagon.
  5. Measure and cut green construction paper into 15x15cm squares to make the stem. One stem can be made from each square.
  6. Fold the green paper in half and make a triangle.
  7. Unfold it, arrange the paper in a diamond shape and fold both sides towards the center, using the crease as a guide. Do the same on the opposite side.
  8. Fold both sides towards the center again to make a thinner diamond.
  9. Fold the diamond in half so that both ends of the diamond meet at one end. The outer shape should look like a pentagon and the inner shape should look like a triangle.
  10. Fold the shape in half along the longer side, then pull out the smaller shape to become the stem of the tulip. The large figure will be a tulip leaf.
  11. Cut a small hole at the base of the flower, then insert the stem into the base of the flower.
