- Bio Color liquid watercolor
- Newsprint or telephone book pages (this flower was made on newsprint)
- Metal Brads
- Hole Punchers
- Lids (different sizes for children to trace)
- Light Colored Construction Paper
- Glitter (optional)
- Stamps and Ink Pads (optional)
|The kids love tearing the pages for their flower craft!|
After we are finished, we punch holes in the centers of the circle clipping. Depending on how many clipping we have we dedicate on table during option time to hole punch. The children love mastering the hole punchers and are so pleased by their work.
More Water Coloring: We take a light sheet of colored contraction paper and allow the children to paint a beautiful place where they have seen flowers. The children love ink stamping butterflies and insects in the background as well.
The Finished Product: Sure, we take our time with this craft, even having two or three days to enjoy it. For the finale children merely stack the circle clippings from big to small then insert the brad. We attach them to their watercolor painting an add a brush of glue and glitter.
This art has a shabby chic look to it...very pretty!
