Craft that uses milk caps to make flowers.


  • Reinforce the concept of the circle shape (milk cap),
  • Learn about parts of a flower
  • Practice creativity and fine motor skills.


  • milk caps in a variety of colors, if possible
  • colored pompons
  • glue
  • colored markers
  • small piece of cardboard per child


  1. During circle, discuss parts of a flower -- petals, center, stem, leaves. (Use real or artificial flower to show parts.)
  2. At art table, give each child a white cardboard square, approximately 5 x 7 inches.
  3. The child then selects 3 milk caps of different colors and glues them onto the cardboard square.
  4. She/he then glues a pompon in the center of each milk cap.
  5. Finally, have the child use a colored marker to draw lines around the milk cap to represent petals, and from the milk cap to the bottom of the cardboard to represent the stem and leaves.
