International Women’s Day is celebrated all over the world on 8th March. It’s a great opportunity to talk to your little one’s about “Who are the important women in their lives and why?” And what nice things they could do to make them feel special and appreciated on that day?
To continue the tradition of giving flowers we have a lovely activity to make a paper flower for Grandma, mum or a sibling. We hope you have fun!
Making Paper Flowers
This little activity will encourage you to celebrate International Women’s Day by making paper flowers to let your child’s special woman know how special they are.
You will need :

- Ask your child why their ‘special woman’ is special to them.
- Write each thing they name on a petal.
- Glue the petals around the straw to make a flower.
