Flower Art For Kids Reviewed

Kids Making Flower Art

I found some flower art for kids to give to my youngest granddaughter for her birthday this year. She enjoys doing all sorts of crafty things so after reviewing some options, the kit that I purchased just seemed like a perfect match for her age and her personality.

The kit is called Random Acts of Flowers and fits my little sweet pea (pun intended) to a "t". I can see her making a small bunch of flowers to give to someone in a random act of kindness. She is so in tune with the emotions people are experiencing around her and would delight in making someone smile with a little gift.


Teaching Kindness With Crafts


The kit includes 75 sheets of tissue paper, 12 floral stems, 12 gift tags, a hanging vase and a bandit mask. Why the mask? This is supposed to be random and anonymous...besides kids love it. What is not included is a pair of scissors and you will also have to supply the kind soul of a child or adult. It is the most important ingredient in the mix!

So, making these flowers and then finding a place to hang them so that people can smile as they take one from the hanging bouquet is only part of the fun. Those gift tags that can be attached to a flower are supposed to have a message on them. The encouraged message is that whoever takes the flower is supposed to go do something nice for someone else. Don't you just love that?

Added to the benefit of spreading kindness one little action at a time is the fact that every purchase of one of these kits pays it forward a little more. A donation is made to a charity that takes re-cycled flowers along with words of encouragement to health care facilities to promote the emotional well-being to residents. I love that!


A Gift that Keeps Giving


Another thing I loved about this flower art for kids kit is that it plants that seed of kindness but it doesn't have to stop once the original supplies are used up. It is so very easy to buy more tissue paper. The children can make their own little gift tags and flower stems can be replenished. The hanging vase might be taken away but they can use their imagination to make another one. 

What do you think? Would you give a child a gift like this?

  1. What a very sweet craft kit, especially for a little girl. I have a daughter just like your granddaughter who has always had such empathy for other people and doing random acts of kindness has always been part of her personality. This flower art kit would have been perfect for her as a child. Isn't it fun to find a gift for a child that fits their personality so well?

  2. Oh this sounds like a really nice gift idea. I am looking for things that can keep an active 11 year old busy, without running around and this sounds like a great craft to keep her busy. Thanks for this review Beverly Owens.

  3. I love this craft kit and idea for kids! Early on as I was reading this article, I immediately thought what a wonderfully encouraging gift a DIY flower with a note would be for nursing home residents. I had to smile when I got to the part about the charity. What a wonderful way to teach children kindness, as well as brighten a day for someone with a sweet gift.
