Found this cute looking flower idea at http://www.kinderart.com/seasons/mother1.shtml.
Notes: I found the directions a little confusing around step 4. I decided to take the piece of construction paper and open it up and staple each end into a circle to create a paper lantern. Then I brought the 2 ends towards each other to create a flower shape and stapled a yellow circle in to the center. I added a loop of yarn so it could be hung too!
