Botanical Color Circle (Kids’ Craft)

Monday, May 13, 2013 – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

To celebrate spring, and new life, and flowers bursting forth from their winter resting places…. a simple color wheel made with foraged petals and plants from the neighborhood.

Our little heat wave this week sent lots of spring flower petals to the ground as it was simply too hot for their delicate beauty. This made foraging a wee bit easier.

A neat follow-up activity? Place another thick drawing paper on top and use a rock to draw out the beautiful plant colors/dyes. Fascinating!
