Isn't it wonderful to see the beautiful displays of daffodils at the moment? They seem to be in almost every garden with their nodding, golden heads heralding the start of Spring. They are very cheery (a bit like me!) So here's a lovely daffodil craft project you can do during the school holidays to add some daffodil cheer to the inside of the home as well as the garden...

Paper Plate Daffodil
You will need:
- Two Paper Plates
- Toilet Roll Tube
- Selection of yellow and orange paints and papers
- String or ribbon
1. Take one of your paper plates and on the reverse side draw the outline of your daffodil shape. Ask your grown up to cut this shape out, then paint it a lovely bright yellow.
|Painting the flower is a lot of fun|
|I liked adding the glue to the flower|
4. You now need to make the daffodil's trumpet! Root-toot-toot! To do this get a toilet roll tube. Ask a grown up to cut approx 2cm deep slits, approx 1.5cm wide, at one end of the tube (you will have roughly 9 "tabs" when you have finished. On the other end cut lots of slits to make a fringe effect. Once this has done paint the inside and out orange:
|Yay, more painting!|

keep us cheery when we are indoors :)
