Hawaiian Leis

Free Custom Photo Calendars


Fun, easy summertime activity. Perfect for a luau-themed party or just for feeling pretty! If you like this craft, check out our Tissue Paper Flowers.

What You'll Need:
*Hawaiian Lei template (one per child -- see attachment below)
*Colored Yarn
*Scissors
*Crayons/markers
*Hole punch or sharp pencil
*Ziti-type pasta (7 per child)

Preparation:
Print out one copy of the attachment per child - either the Word document OR PDF. We recommend cutting out the flowers first. This makes it easier to color both sides.

Activity:
*Give each child 6 flowers (one template sheet). Have them color both sides.
*Punch a hole in the center of the flower with hole punch or sharp pencil.
*String flowers and pasta onto yarn. Start with pasta, then one flower, and alternate, ending with pasta.
*Tie ends of yarn together.
