Patty pans (cupcake or muffin cases)
Cotton wool balls
Polystyrene (or a potato)
Using child-friendly scissors, chop into the edges of the patty pan.
Tape a pipe cleaner to the back.
Glue a cotton ball to the centre.
And there you have it! If you want you can stab the pipecleaner stems into a piece of polystyrene to make a flower bed. If you don't have any, a potato will work just as effectively!
