My toddler and I did this outside after we collected the flowers.


  • Assorted colours of water colour paint
  • 1 Sheet of paper
  • 1 Assorted size paint brushes
  • 1 Assortment of flowers
  • 1 Container of water to rinse brushes and flowers


  1. Paint flowers (we used different flowers from our lawn). Place painted flowers face down on the paper and press.

  2. Flowers can also be swirled around for a different effect.
  3. When finished, hang up to dry.
