{Craft} Helicopter Seed Thank you Cards for Teachers

We are only a week away from the end of term which means a host of school activities to attend but also the need for a lot of thank you cards. Last week whilst waiting for the school gates to open the Girls spotted a lot of helicopter seeds on the floor so we gathered them all up in my special school-run basket to take home. And we used them to make Helicopter Seed Thank you cards for all the teachers.

I know from The Boy and Me that teachers really appreciate a home-made thank you, and I have to tell you that I am genuinely delighted with how these turned out. All you need is some paint and you can turn some helicopter seeds into all sorts of things. Once dried and glued (my new glue-gun is perfect as it has no cable, and the girls can use it themselves) in place, I added the details with some chalk and LBG wrote her thank you.

I love the way the black background really shows off the colour on the helicopter seeds, and the chalk detail.

Other ways to craft with helicopter seeds include:

I recently ‘showed’ these cards at a flowers and leaves craft hangout with other UK crafty bloggers, and other crafts featured included:

Kids Chaos and their Andy Goldsworthy-Inspired floral art

The Imagination Tree and laminated flower crafts

Zing Zing Tree made beautiful floral masks

Crystal’s Tiny Treasures preserved flowers and made coasters

Fairy and Frog made some sweet thank you paper weights

Here Come The Girls used more pressed flowers to make cards

Me and My Shadow blew me away with flower watercolour paints

And the amazing Red Ted Art made floral votives and flower people!
