Hi everyone! I was tricked. Mom said whoever picked the shortest straw had to write today, but there were 3 of us and only 2 straws.
I made a tissue paper flower in red, white and blue. All you need is 3 colors of tissue paper, scissors and a pipe cleaner or wire. You cute the paper into squares ( about 10 inches by 10 inches). You need 6 of one color, 4 of another and 2 of the last color.
You stack them then fold them like an accordion. Then tie it in the middle with the wire.
Then you puff it up.
And if you are lucky, you can keep a piece of tissue paper to play with.
