Painting with a bouquet of flowers in preschool

Did you save the flower bouquet for preschool? I have shared how the kindergarten class made a flower canvas from a flower bouquet that was just about ready to be thrown out. Here are some additional activities to use up those flowers from the flower bouquet as well…

While at one table, the children were making a flower canvas, at another table the children were painting with flowers…

For this table, I clipped the stems of the flowers leaving just enough stem for a handle and the top of the flower for a paint brush..

Some of the children preferred to use the flowers as paintbrushes and stroke the paint on their paper…

Other’s preferred to use the flowers more like stamps and print the flower shapes on their paper (Miss Martin even thought she would give this a try)…

The children used cotton swabs to make the stems of their flowers….

Then they dipped the flowers in the paint and added the flowers to the top of their painted stems…

Here are a few of our final flower paintings…

So don’t throw away that flower bouquet just yet!
