Ah, springtime. The grass is green, the birds are singing, and the flowers are blooming. Here is an art project for prek-k that celebrates daffodils. These cute little flowers make use of cupcake liners.

Supplies Needed:

  • paint-yellow and green
  • smocks
  • paint brushes
  • glue or paste
  • scissors
  • Daffodil Template
  • blue construction paper or stock


Daffodil Art ProjectPrint the “daffodil template”. One per child is needed (A copier can be used to print the template onto a heavier paper for the purpose of painting it later). Have children cut out the daffodil pieces. Next, children should paint the flower yellow and the stem pieces green. While the yellow flower piece is still wet, have children place one cupcake liner in the middle of it. The wet paint will help it to adhere to the flower piece. Once dry, children can glue or paste the flower pieces onto blue construction paper.

*The longest stem piece will be too long for an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of construction paper. If using this length, have children glue that piece on first and then the yellow flower on top of it so it will accommodate the page without hanging off the edge or requiring the need for cutting.
