The post went on to reveal an activity for parents and homeschoolers to get involved in amid the coronavirus lockdown.
Asking if followers were ‘feeling inspired,’ the post then shared a swipe up link which explained how anyone from the age of six plus, with adult supervision, can partake in making their very own paper flowers.
According to the instructions, all that is needed is coloured paper or felt buttons, scissors, a sheet of A4 thick paper or card, sticky tape and PVA glue.

Firstly, lay out the paper or felt and cut out a selection of flower shapes in different sizes, before cutting five small shapes and five big shapes.
Then, lay out all of the big flower shapes, and add a small dot of glue in the middle of each of them.
Next, sit a small flower shape on top of each of the big ones so that the glue sticks them both together, place a small dot of glue in the middle of each of the small flower shapes, and place a button on it.
Finally, after leaving them to dry for 15 minutes, use some sticky tape to attach each flower to a paper straw and put them in a glass or vase.
