We love that you only need a few supplies to make this flower card! If you don’t have colored cardstock you can also paint a handprint and print it on white paper. Then use paint to draw the stem and leaf.
If you don’t have googly eyes you can cut out white paper and then use a marker for a dot in the center. You can also have kids draw or color on the eyes and pink cheeks.
