Cherry Blossom Craft

We have a beautiful cherry blossom tree right outside of our house. One of my favorite times of year is when it’s in full bloom and I can see the fluffy light pink blossoms from the window. The only thing is, peak bloom just doesn’t seem to last long enough! So this simple cherry blossom craft is a fun way to have our own mini tree inside. All of the cutting, rolling, tearing, and sticking proved to be great fine motor practice for my boys – one great benefit of crafting! Plus the materials in this spring crafts for preschoolers, toddlers, kindergartners, and grade 1 students are simple and you may even already have them at home. We used recycled tissue paper that we kept from a gift.

So whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler – you will love creating a forest of pretty flowering spring trees with this cherry blossom crafts for preschool.

Cherry Blossom Tree Craft

All you need to make these pretty cherry tree crafts are a few simple supplies you probabaly already have on hand:

Materials:

  • brown construction paper
  • tissue paper (pink or white)
  • scissors
  • glue
brown construction paper with slits

How to make a cherry blossom tree with tissue paper

First, fold brown construction paper in half length wise to make a fold to use as a cutting guide. Cut strips into the paper along the long edge, stopping at the folded line. My 4 year-old’s lines were not perfectly straight, but I think that adds to the charm of the tree and actually looks more like tree branches.

Next up in making this spring crafts for preschoolers, you will roll the paper to make a tree shape. Add glue along the short edge up to the fold. Continue rolling and press along the edge to glue shut. You may need to pinch and hold the end for a bit for the glue to stick.

Add dots of glue on the branches. Tear off small pieces of tissue paper, pinch them to scrunch them up, and then stick them onto the glue dots.

After the glue dries, your cherry blossom tree is ready for display! These should be able to stand on their own, but the bottom is uneven, just trim it to make it flat and they should stand up.
