At our Girl Scout meetings, we have become accustomed to recreating whichever flower we are learning about during our craft. The girls really look forward to the craft. Sometimes it's hard to recreate the flower and as you get further into the flowers, you'll find that Gloria the Morning Glory looks an awful like Gerri the Geranium who looks an awful like Vi the Violet. So creating a unique craft sometimes becomes the bane of my existence for an hour or two.
Thankfully, Tula the Tulip, who represents the courageous and strong part of the Girl Scout Law, turned out to be easy an one.
I found a tulip pattern here. I printed out enough patterns for all of the girls and had each of them cut them out using scissors.
We then traced them onto red construction paper and cut them out again.
We also cut out rectangles from green construction paper and glued it to the bottom of the tulip. Then, simply fold on the lines (or where the lines are on the pattern), add some glue and close.
The only problem we encountered was getting the right vertical orientation with the tulip pattern. I get holding it upside down for some reason and that confused everyone.
We ended up cutting out some little additional petals from our scraps of red construction paper and added them to the stem.
Within no time, each girl had their very own Tula to add to their growing Girl Scout flower friend collection!
Till next time,
