Fun Straw Blown Flowers Painting

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.

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.
