New students have trouble using scissors. This project helps them to practice and make a beautiful abstract. I stress moving the paper, not the scissors, when cutting curves. We often fold construction paper and cut symmetrical shapes to create the flowers. We make all the paper flowers first, clean up, then get out the glue. Using glue is often problematic with young artists. I suggest to the students to use only two drops and spread it with their pinky fingers "Pinky Glue".
