Make math learning fun for kids- Learn fractions using our Paper Plate Fraction Flower Craft + a fun Giveaway by Cuemath that you don’t want to miss!
How do those two words make you feel? More importantly, how do they make your child feel?
At our home, it’s either overwhelmingly hard or frustratingly boring. What’s a parent to do?
ArtsyCraftsyMom that I am, I try to make every subject fun when I can. So, when my daughter was struggling with Fractions at school, I made a fun craft to make the concepts more visual for her.
Math is not a problem to be solved but a concept to be understood!
DIY Pretty Fraction Flower Craft using Paper Plates
These Fraction Flowers are a fun way to learn about and to practice fractions. They are also great for learning fraction equivalents.
To make them, print out the fraction circles on a yellow paper. Gather some sketch Pens, scissors & glue to assemble them. We made: 1 whole, 1/2, 1/3, ¼, 1/5, 1/6, 1/7, 1/8, 1/9, & 1/10
Using crayons, sketch pens or watercolors paint the paper plates in different colors. I wanted to keep each fraction family a separate color for easy distinction.
Cut out each fraction circle and glue them onto the center of the colored paper plate.
You can add a green craft stick as a stem if you want to make them into flowers.
Once the glue is dry, cut the plates along the fraction lines apart.
Using the Fraction Flower Craft to learn
Learning fractions can be incredibly challenging for kids. But visuals make understanding them so much easier.
How is it that 1/2 is bigger than 1/4 when a 4 is bigger than a 2? By placing each petal next to each other, kids can visually distinguish this fact.
Next, challenge them to build each a complete flower by finding the correct number of petals to complete each whole.
These paper plate fraction flowers are REALLY fabulous for addition and subtraction as again, by touching and moving the pieces they can find out the answer for themselves and problem solve when it doesn’t quite work.

Making Math Fun!
Little kids naturally love counting, sorting, doing puzzles, and discovering patterns. This ability needs to be nurtured and encouraged from a young age.
When a subject is fun and engaging, kids associate it with positive feelings and their confidence levels naturally rise by that Aha-moment! when they can finally understand a math concept.
