Art for children. We are pretty sure that art activities interest you greatly as they bring hours of fun to your children. We were impressed with this interesting technique — Quilling or paper twisting, when we first got acquainted with it. And we advise you to try it, too — a lot of cute things can be made out of paper.

For making a Flower in the Flowerpot out of paper we needed:
— colored paper [light green, pink, orange and white]
— scissors
