We have been reading a lot of books about flowers, so R made two different kinds of flowers with paint this week.
She began with hand and arm print tulips. First, she painted her forearm green and pressed it down on the paper to create stems.
Then she painted her hand and fingers (except the thumb) pink and pressed it down at the top of the stems.
She also used a small water bottle and dipped the bottom in purple paint and then stamped it on paper to create flowers.
I saw this technique on Valerie's Frugal Family Fun Blog. R LOVED doing this! When the paint dried, R used a dot marker to add yellow centers to her purple flowers. You can find a link for Do-a-Dot markers at the end of this post. We use them often and they last a long time! We love them!
R created quite the garden!
The books in the photo above are: Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert (We are big fans of Lois Ehlert!) and Rose: A Flower's Story by Joanne Randolph. I definitely recommend both books.
