You'll Need:


— colored cardboard,
— white papar for Xerox,
— green crepe paper,
— PVA glue,
— brush.

How to Make:


Prepare the white paper strips 7 cm length and 1 cm width — 3 for each kid, a green stalk and 2 green leaves.

The stalk is made from a rectangle of crepe paper with the sides 8 cm x 2 cm. It's twisted in a spiral 2 cm from the edge. The lower part of a leaf is also twisted.

The kids made the loops joining the edges by themselves and glue them. Some children needed the educator's help.

Then we placed the workpieces of a snowdrop on a cardboard sheet and glued the parts alternately.

Pay attention to gluing the petals: the base of a loop should be joined in one place, i.e they have to be put on each other. Kids should hold the petals by the base while gluing, otherwise they can be crumpled and lose their shape.

Note: While gluing the stalk and leaves take a little glue on the brush, so that the paper should not get wet. Grease the lower twisted part of the leaves and glue them close to the stalk.
