So A and I finally finished a craft that we started about two weeks ago today, so I thought I would post it! It was inspired by this pin on pinterest that I found. The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle was one of my favorite books growing up and now it is one of A’s as well. This was a simple enough craft, however, it is a two step process.
8×11 or larger cardstock (one green, one orange)
One large sheet of white paper (I used a 16×20 piece of finger painting paper that I had)
One small sheet of white paper
Kids paint (I used red, yellow, orange for the orange piece of paper, and then the different greens I had for the green piece of paper)
Let your kiddo finger paint, or paint with brushes the orange and green piece of cardstock and coordinate the colors (red, yellow, orange with the orange piece of cardstock) (green with the green piece of cardstock). Then let dry. This will usually take a couple of hours. As I said before we didn’t finish it until a few weeks later.
Cut petals out of the orange piece of cardstock. Cut a stem and leaves out of the green piece of cardstock. Then let your child tape and glue stick at will. I let A tape the stem and leaves with little help and then helped him more with the petals. After we taped on the petals we glued a circle of white paper on top and then I let A finish up by coloring the middle circle and the paper around the flower. And voila!
