fingerpainted flowers (kids craft)

Wednesday, June 8, 2011 – Filed under: art,flowers,kid friendly,kids crafts,kids friendly ::

Inspired by the beautiful blooms in our little gardens (hello bleeding hearts, iris, astilbe, peony, phlox)…. my little one used some Tempra paint on her fingertips to make some beautiful flowers of her own.

First she used watercolor paper (we cut these into pieces as the scale of the craft is quite small – you know, those 4 year old fingertips :) Then she used wax green crayons to draw her stems.

Then, using her favorite neon colored Tempra paints, she made her blossoms!

What’s coming up in your garden?

    What a great idea! Thanks for sharing. I will be remembering this, for a five-year-old visit in a couple weeks :-)
