3 Flowers from pipe cleaners

When we suddenly came to know about My son's teacher's birthday and my son wanted to do something for her, we decided to try these a bouquet of flowers with the pipe cleaners.

First take the red pipe cleaner and make it into round coil form. Then take the blue pipe cleaner and start making a flower shape (like an oval) going underneath the red coiled pipe cleaner and coming above and so forth. I used two blue pipe cleaner to make one flower( 5 petals). Then attach it to the green stem (green pipe cleaner). Similarly do the orange flower and white flower and attach them to the green stem. It was a cool thing to try out with a 5 1/2 year old boy.

Then added a white (address label sticker) and asked him to write happy birthday and another one from having his name and attached it to the bouquet.
