Mini Cupcake Daffodils

I spied these cute mini cupcake liners at Michaels, and they worked perfectly for a kinder daffodil collage today. The only change was they cut triangles for petals instead of the trickier curvy ones.
1. I needed lots of yellow, green and blue paper (for 6 kinder classes) and found just what I needed at Staples. Look in their copy paper aisle for card stock blue and yellow and green reams of paper. Students first cut three stems and glue them across the blue paper. Leaves are added to each.
2. Cut about 5 petals for each flower, and glue them around the top of each stem. Kinders will do better with just cutting large triangles. 
3. Take one liner, turn it inside out so that the yellow is on the inside (usually white is) and glue to each flower.
4. Add about 4 or 5 little yellow beans for the seeds inside.

Really adorable! My 1st grader would love to do this.

Awesome. Went on Amazon and ordered 300 mini liners to do these with my kindergartners. Both they, their teachers and the parents will love them. Thanks for another great idea.

adorable! I had them use white petals with yellow centers too, like the narcissus type daffodil. The contrast was beautiful! thank you!
