10 Craft Ideas To Do With Garden Coloring Pages
Garden-themed coloring pages have a lot to offer kids of all ages.
If your youngster is collecting pages, put them to good use with these 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative crafts.
1. Flower Pot Fun
Start this easy craft by having each youngster take a piece of green posterboard or construction paper, and fold it into the shape of a flower pot.
Fringes can be cut from the top down to make this “vase” extra fancy.
The outside of the flowerpot can then be laminated with the finished garden coloring pages in their entirety or with items cut from the pages.
The fun part of this craft is the youngsters can get as creative as they want!
2. Make a 3D Garden
This activity only requires craft sticks, coloring pages, and some styrofoam.
With green or brown craft paint, let the children turn ordinary styrofoam squares into foundations for a homemade garden.
When the paint is dry, the youngsters should cut items from their finished pages and glue them to craft sticks.
The craft sticks can then be pushed down into the styrofoam for a colorful and unique garden.
3. A Colorful Garden Wreath
Begin this craft by having the youngster color and cut out three clusters of garden items from the finished coloring pages. These should be sealed in contact paper or glassine.
Next, the center of an ordinary large paper plate should be cut out, leaving only the fringed edge.
This should be colored however the child pleases, and the cutouts glued around its circumference.
A bright ribbon can be used to hang up this bright garden wreath.
4. Dress Up Old Flower Pots
If you have old flower pots or window boxes that could use some pizzazz, your child’s coloring pages are the perfect remedy.
Let the youngster color as many as necessary for what you want to laminate, making sure to seal them in glassine or contact paper.
They can then be added to the containers decal-style, or the pages can be used in their entirety. Craft glue works best for this.
A few coats of acrylic spray will seal in the artwork, and you can enjoy your new flower pots!
5. Create a Magic Garden
For this cute craft, have the youngster color flowers, butterflies, caterpillars, and birds, and cut them from the various coloring pages.
Next, glue a strip of green construction paper across the bottom of a poster board so that the flowers can be tucked behind it.
Its front can then be decorated with butterflies and caterpillars and the birds glued to the poster’s top half.
The youngster can add a big yellow sun and decorate the poster with glitter, craft gems, and puffy paint. Now the child has his or her own secret garden.
6. A Fancy Kitchen Sign
If mom or dad has a vegetable garden, this craft makes a great gift. It’s also a terrific classroom activity.
Using a vegetable-themed garden coloring page, the child should color and cut out five or six different fruits and vegetables.
These should be glued to the top of a white poster board, with their names written underneath in puffy paint.
Then, the youngster can write an interesting fact about each item under its picture and sign his or her name for a great gift for mom or dad.
7. Create Unique Wall Art
To make this unique wall art, glue the entire coloring page to thick cardboard. Pages featuring flower gardens are perfect for this craft.
Next, glue green pipe cleaners to the flower stems, add craft gems to the petals, and tiny pom-poms to the flowers’ centers.
Cupcake wrappers can be used as fancy fringes around large plants like sunflowers by cutting the circular bottom out of the wrapper and using the textured part.
Once embellished, this unique artwork can be framed and displayed anywhere!
8. Make a Delightful Garden Crown
This craft is perfect for small children and makes an ideal classroom activity.
Using two pieces of construction paper, fashion a crown and have the youngsters cut the top into a fringe that looks like grass. Just be careful not to make the blades too long.
When the garden items are colored and cut from the page, they can be glued to various places around the crown.
The result is a unique and fun garden the youngsters can wear like a hat!
9. A Sunny Day in the Garden
For this comical craft, leave the coloring page in its entirety and glue it to ordinary cardboard.
Next, have the youngster make a “fence” along the bottom of the page with toothpicks.
White pom-poms or cotton can be added for three-dimensional clouds and a big yellow pom-pom for the sun.
Then, with a black marker, let the child draw sunglasses on all the flowers and vegetables as if they are basking in the sun!
10. Make a Beautiful Greeting Card
To make this lovely greeting card, leave the finished coloring page in one piece, and reinforce it with a piece of construction paper.
Next, cut a front cover from a white poster board, making sure it is the same size.
Then, cut an oval shape in its center so that when placed over the coloring page, part of the artwork shows through.
When open, the entire page will be displayed, and the child can write a message on the bottom for the recipient!
