Flower have always been one of our favorite crafts and activities to do for spring. When you add a little change in how you paint it can be fun.
By using straws you work on breath control while painting fun flowers. It gives kids a different way to paint instead of the same old way every time.
The flowers are fun and kids love a challenge.
There are so many great books out there that have a flower theme. One that we like is Planting a Rainbow. There are so many fun colors in this book. We wanted to make fun colorful flowers as well.
What you need for this painting activity:
We started by dripping paint around the paper. My girls started blowing the paint after I showed them what to do. My middle had an easy time doing it.
My youngest who is two years old had a harder time getting her mouth around the straw.
She started to use the foam stampers because she got frustrated the paint was not moving. I always remember that it is about having fun not trying to set goal.
We put white paint in the center of the colors and she blew the white color for the center of the flowers.
Here is a look at how our flowers turned out before we put the stems on them.
After the paint had dried a little bit they painted painted the stems on the flowers. We did not want the paints to mix while adding the stems.
Here is a look at the final picture:
