As Springtime blooms we start to see more big, bold colors throughout nature, and this handprint flowers craft is the perfect way to reflect those bright hues! In addition to your handprint, collect some small items from around the house and get started on your own flowerscapes! This craft is perfect for at home or in the classroom, and is a great way to let kids experiment with different ways of creating art.
Handprint Flowers Craft for Kids Supplies:
- Darice Paper Roll
- Darice Washable Paint
- Darice Small Sponge Brush
- Plastic Forks
- Paper Plates
- Bell Pepper (or other vegetable for stamping)
Step 1. Put a few colors of paint onto your paper plates. Use sponge brush or small paint brush to cover palm and fingers of hand in paint and stamp onto paper. Use sponge brush to create stem and leaves.
Step 2. To create adorable daisies, dip the bottom of a bell pepper into paint and stamp onto paper for the perfect outline. You can also cut the top of the pepper off and use that end to create the perfect 3-leaf clover.
Step 4. Another great way to create a happy flower is by using a plastic fork. Dip the end of a fork into your paint and stamp onto paper to create a tulip shape. Fork prints also make for the best grass accents!
Step 5. Get creative and let your kids make their own original pieces and “gardens” like Lucy did below! Encourage the kids in your life to experiment with paint. It is often the most unexpected objects that add richness to their creations!
