Gather Your Materials
- paint (red, yellow, green, blue, white)
- paint brushes
- thick paper
Paint one sheet of paper in a mostly solid color to be your flower petals and center. You'll want to use one main color, plus one additional color, not mixed in very well, to get a swirly mixture style. This is a great opportunity to talk about color mixing! We used red and yellow.
Paint another sheet of paper in a mostly solid color to be your stem and leaves. Again, use one main color plus another color to get it sort of mix-y. We used green, white and blue.
Let these pages dry overnight.
On the back, draw the basic shapes for your flower-- petals, flower center, stem, and leaves. Have your crafter cut out the shapes (or do it for them).
Position flower pieces onto a separate sheet of paper and glue in place. I accidentally made our petals too big, so they hung off the page, but I actually think it ended up looking very artsy this way.
