This idea came from a gift I was given by a student several years ago.
She gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers on sticks she had painted herself. Her mom said she did almost the whole thing on her own completely of her own inspiration!
My daughter and I often talk about how adults are so incredibly un-creative it causes massive problems in the world. She’s not wrong :/
You will need:
- Straight sticks (these are the stems)
- Egg cartons (cut up into just the cups)
- Water colour paint
- Paint brush
- White glue
- Card stock
To the grown up:
Lay the egg cartons, paint and optional supplies out in a prepped area for your little one to create and explore freely.
Once the egg cartons are painted, poke a hole in the middle of the bottom of a cup and poke the stick through the end. It will wobble a little and that’s ok. Flowers are delicate 🙂
Many of the images I saw on the internet used pipe cleaners for stems but I really like the sticks better.
