I love strawberries.
My grandkids love strawberries.
We love to do crafts.
So let’s do a strawberry craft!
I saw this idea on KROKOTAK.com and decided that it was a terrific idea to do.
I think it is the easiest ever strawberry craft!
Here’s what you need:
- red paper
- green paper
- yellow cardstock
- strawberry hull pattern (scroll down to see the pattern)
First, cut a strawberry hull from the green paper. (My one granddaughter didn’t have the fine motor still to cut them out so I did it for her.)
Next, take a red piece of paper put the two shorts sides together and press and fold. Cut along the fold so that you have two pieces that are 4.25 inches wide by 11 inches long. Fold one of those pieces again so you have a piece of paper that is about 2 inches by 11 inches.
Draw half of a heart shape along the folded edge and then cut out to make a heart. You’ll have a long, skinny heart. Cut another heart from the other half of paper.
Put glue on one half of one of the hearts . . .
. . . and glue it on the yellow paper. Add glue to one-half of the other heart. Place the folded edge of this heart as close as possible to the edge of the other heart that is already glued in place.
Cut out the hull and glue it at the top of the strawberry.
To make the ‘seeds,’ draw black dots all over the red hearts.
Ta da! Your strawberry craft is finished! Now go eat a bowl of fresh strawberries!
