Flower Power!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need some paper, a marker, some paint, a cupcake liner and some glue.
  2. Draw or have your child draw the outline of a flower and a stem on two separate pieces of paper.
  3. Spread some paint either directly on the paper or in a small plate and start finger painting, be prepared for paint on clothes, and in the mouth with young ones , make sure it’s non toxic!
  4. Switch paper and do the stem. I used colored paper but there is no reason not to use white.
  5. Let the paint dry and cut along the marker outline.
  6. Glue the flower onto another piece of paper and glue a cup cake liner in the middle of the flower for a finishing touch!

** What I like about this activity is that it gives your child a chance to explore the paint freely and then see how it can create a flower. Most preschoolers I have done this craft with asked to make another finger painting after we set the flower pieces up to dry! **

Song – sing it to the tune of “I’m a little tea pot”.

I’m a little Daisy
Tall and Slim
Here are my petals and here is my stem
When the sun comes up
and the rain comes down
I grow and grow up from the ground!
