A simple, bright, and colourful way to display the children’s birthdays that will fit in with a spring theme. Children of all ages can enjoy participating in creating the flower.
You will need:
- Large pieces of plain paper
- Bright coloured paints
- Circles of card
- Twelve labels printed with the names of the months
Draw a large flower onto the paper with twelve petals, one for each month of the year. Alternatively draw two flowers, each with six petals. The children can paint the flowers as a group using their own choices of colours.
Cut out the flower and attach the names of the months to the petals. Next, on the circles of card, write the children’s names and dates of birth, before attaching them to the correct petal of the flower.
The birthday chart can then be displayed as part of a spring or nature theme.
