How to create toilet paper roll flowers

Check out these step by step instructions for creating these fun tissue paper flowers. Then see it all in action in the video below.

Depending on how old your child is, there may be a small amount of prep.

First, you need to make your flowers. Start by cutting your tube into circles. This tissue paper flowers activity helps to strengthen your child's fine motor skills while creating a fun flower craft!

I cut one tube into sixths. Then using the second tube I cut off one more ring for the center. You will need 7 circles total.

Using your hot glue, attach the circles together to create a flower. This tissue paper flowers activity helps to strengthen your child's fine motor skills while creating a fun flower craft!

You can let your little one do this with white glue, but you will have to wait for it to dry completely to move on.

You will also need to attach your yarn or string with glue too. This tissue paper flowers activity helps to strengthen your child's fine motor skills while creating a fun flower craft!

Next, cut your tissue paper into small squares. 2 inches and under will work best.

Then start to crumple the paper into balls and place them into the flower!This tissue paper flowers activity helps to strengthen your child's fine motor skills while creating a fun flower craft!

Keep adding until each petal and the center is full. This tissue paper flowers activity helps to strengthen your child's fine motor skills while creating a fun flower craft!

Now take and drizzle white glue all over the back. Go in circles in each petal, back and forth from the center out, and even swirl it around all the edges. Set aside to dry. This tissue paper flowers activity helps to strengthen your child's fine motor skills while creating a fun flower craft!

When the glue turns clear that means your tissue paper flowers are dry and ready to hang!
