President Washington could not tell a lie. So the story goes. So, he told his dad that he’d hacked the cherry blossom tree.
As, practically unbeknownst to the rest of the world, the third Monday of February is Presidents Day, and as it is a federal public holiday in the US, I thought to write today about crafts to do on President’s Day.
Make a Cherry Tree
Let’s confess some ‘truths’ today on Presidents day, and let’s make a lovely cherry tree.
For kids, there are many ways to make a cherry tree: with rag pipe cleaners, with dots of paper, or even simpler by coloring & cutting out a blossom tree coloring page.
(Or, if they prefer to honor President Teddy Roosevelt, they might prefer this stars and stripes teddy bear coloring page.)
Cherry Blossom Crochet Trees
As well, as a treat for pro craft artisans, I have a crochet craft inspiration for you
- This is art crochet craft ~ there is no pattern, just a creative buzz singing…:
- Make a tree
- Make the colored flowers
- Add the flowers to the tree
- Add the tree to a crocheted rock, simulating roots while you are attaching one to the other with free-form stitches
- Vary the colors and sizes a bit and make a grouping of 3.
- And there you have your craft project for today.
