I really love my 1 inch hole punch, I didn't expect it, but it has been well worth the investment. For the flowers I punch some petals from mostly white magazines and used circles I'd cut out previously from construction paper. I had the girls select a construction paper circle for the center, added some glue for them and had them add at least five petals. We used this as counting practice - "Do you have five petals yet? How many petals do you have? How many more do you need?"
When they got tired of making flowers I grabbed an empty cardboard box (truthfully, I emptied the last of the fruit snacks out of a not-so-empty box because it was the right size) and cut strips for the head bands. Just a tip - I took the open box and tested putting it on their heads to make sure it was big enough. Then I adjusted the strip to fit each of them and used some duct tape (very fashionable, I know) to make the circle.
We glued on the flowers and had a photo shoot! Chiquita is so cute about taking pictures now - she loves to pose! These crowns were totally recycled but I think they ended up looking really sweet.
