"Forever flowers" for sale

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) - Mother's Day is just around the corner. If you haven't picked up a gift yet, how about a forever flower?

The Central Wisconsin Children's Museum is holding a "forever flower" sale. The blooms are handcrafted by volunteers and are made from paper and fabric. Museum leaders say it's a flower that will never wilt or die and it gives children a chance to give back to their mothers.

"We hope that we can give an easy way for kids to get something for mom that's beautiful and special and unique, and encourage kids to be giving and celebrate their mothers," said Maggie Keneen, the Central Wisconsin Children's Museum executive director.

The flowers cost $2 each and the sale runs until Sunday. Museum leaders say all proceeds will go to programs and exhibits.
