Celebrate spring with your child with this free printable daffodil template that’s perfect for coloring and kids crafts.
Winter seems to last for ages and I know my kids and I are always excited about the change in seasons when daffodils start to appear, with their cheerful color they feel like proof that brighter days are coming soon.
There are three different PDF designs that you can download and as normal I’ll be sharing some ideas for ways that you can use these printables to make some easy crafts together.
What You'll Find on This Page
Daffodils have to be one of my favorite flowers and throughout the spring season you’ll normally find some in a vase in our home, I think they’re an instant way to brighten your mood.
As well as being perfect for spring themed crafts and activities, daffodils are also the national flower of Wales so they’re perfect for St David’s Day crafts.
There are three different daffodil designs available, the first is a full daffodil flower including it’s stem and long leaves. The second picture is a close up on the flower showing its petals and trumpet while the final image is a basic outline of the flower shape.
You can print out all three images or just the one that you want and of course you can print as many copies as you like making this perfect for preschool, kindergarten or classroom use too.
More Flower Templates
We love sharing free printable templates for kids crafts because they’re a great way to get creative with your kids without spending a fortune.
With each printable I also share some ideas for ways that you could use it at home or in a classroom to help fire up your imagination – I know you’ll think of loads more cool ideas too!
As well as our daffodil template you could also download these flower templates. They’re both free and I think they’d look brilliant colored and cut out as part of a bulletin board display.
Daffodil Craft Ideas
Coloring – these templates would make brilliant daffodil coloring pages and it’s a great activity for quiet time with your children too. All you need to do is print out the daffodil outline you want and grab some crayons, markers, pastel chalk or coloring pencils and you’re ready to get started. Want to use these as painting templates? Just grab your green and yellow paints instead!
Tissue Paper – use two different methods to decorate your daffodil. First grab a glue stick and stick some yellow tissue paper squares onto the petals of your flower and then scrunch some more tissue paper into ball shapes which you can glue onto the trumpet in the centre of it.
Dot Painting – dot painting is a fun way to color in templates for a change from using a paintbrush. You can either create dots using a bingo dabber or dip a cotton bud (q-tip) into some paint and dab this onto your template to color it in.
Torn Paper – tearing paper is really good for fine motor skills and it’s a really good way to use up any scrap materials that you have lying around. Look for yellow and green construction paper, printer paper or even colored pages in magazines. Once you’ve torn your paper into pieces just stick it onto your daffodil to color it in.
Suncatcher – make the most of sunnier spring days and use the template to make a daffodil suncatcher. If you haven’t made a suncatcher before then I’ve attached a little video tutorial to this post to help show you how to make it, we recommend using colored cellophane for the brightest colors with your contact paper but tissue paper works as well.
