There is nothing prettier than a cherry tree in full bloom. The National Cherry Blossom Festival held annually in Washington, DC cites their average peak bloom day as April 4th. We fancy ourselves to be amateur festival aficionados, and this one is high on our bucket list. Until then, we must create our own blossom trees using paper flowers and our complimentary tree template. Great fine motor activity for kiddos!

Supplies: 

NOTE: We use affiliate links.

The Lowdown: 
  1. Print blossom tree trunk onto cardstock.
  2. Cut out trunk and adhere to desired cardstock. You could have kiddos trace the tree template or even freehand a tree of their own.
  3. Select flowers for placement on tree. Play around with different color and size combinations.
  4. Glue to cardstock.
