We made tissue paper flowers in preschool

Tissue paper is such a wonderful product to work with in preschool. The bright colors that are available lend to wonderful opportunities for exploring art.

Each child was given a paper flower shape as their canvas…

The children painted the stem and leaves of the flower with green paint. Controlling the flow of paint is one aspect of learning to create…

Then the children spread glue on the flower shape. The spreading of glue is another aspect of learning to create…

Next the children began to place tissue paper squares on the glue…

Separating those thin layers of tissue paper can be quite challenging for fine motor skills…

Decision-making is also involved as we choose from all those bright colors…

And we are learning that in order for the tissue paper to stay on our flower, it has to actually stick to the glue…

As we engage in this process, we are mastering our skills and ability to create!
