It's springtime! The flowers are blooming and the allergies are abound!!
For our small group rotations, we painted with flowers. We used fake flowers this year, although we've used fresh flowers in the past. Fresh flowers are really neat to use because we occasionally got some petals into our paintings.
We gathered our materials
The students requested their paper (I want paper) and then requested their paint (I want red, I want orange, etc).
We gave them the idea to just paint a couple of times with each flower, going up then down--that way, they could see the outline of their flower better. But, really, they could do it any way the wanted!
The kids had lots of fun painting with flowers!
