I have shared this idea as an easel starter but my class did such an amazing job exploring this process at the easel that I just can’t help but share our latest experience with flower painting at the easel…

Currently, we have our easel set up for painting in our outdoor classroom. We are constantly putting out different materials at the easel for the children to explore but I must tell you that the number one favorite for my students this year is just having available several colors of paint and paint brushes…

To follow my student’s lead, I have been making sure we keep different colors of paint and brushes at the easel but today, I also added a set of white paper cupcake holders and a bottle of glue. I showed the children how they can glue the paper cups to their paper so they would know to look for the paper cups if they were interested in giving this a try…

This was a popular easel painting experience. Each of the children chose how they would like to integrate the paper cups into their painting. Some of the children wanted their paper cups to be glued completely flat on the paper while others only glued the bottoms of the paper cups to the paper and left a more 3D look…

Almost every child chose to paint inside the paper cups in one way or another. Some of the children painted over their paper cups until the cups were completely flat and some gently painted inside to keep the paper cups from going flat…

In the end, we had all kinds of bright and beautiful easel painting results…

As a side note: It wasn’t until this little one started painting that I realized I hadn’t set out green paint in the easel today but I did set out yellow and blue paint. This little one quickly figured out how to make her own green painted stems by mixing the two colors on the easel. I thought that was super cool and brilliant!
