These lollipop flowers are a simple-to-make surprise for someone special. Help your child put together a sweet, petite bouquet for a friend or teacher. Or make several as birthday-party favors or tabletop nosegays at a luncheon. For the most realistic “petals,” use craft foam; it has a little more weight than construction paper.
