Those of us in D.C. have the annual cherry blossoms to look forward to next month. The brutal winter most likely has delayed things a bit but we're excited nonetheless. In anticipation of the blossoms, a paper cherry blossom project is in order. We spotted this over at Bloesem Kids and now we can't wait to gather some branches on the way home today. You'll need origami paper (or other lightweight paper), tape, and scissors. Go here to check out step-by-step instructions. It's a relatively easy project for slightly older kids. The youngest ones can help taping the flowers on to the branches. We love the idea of making one branch and framing it but they look just as beautiful in a simple vase.
