Liquid Watercolor™ Paper Flowers

watercolorflowers Make and gather your own bouquet.

Goals:

  • To encourage creative expression
  • To develop fine motor skills

Before You Start: Gather materials needed for activity: Liquid Watercolor™ Texas Snowflakes, droppers, spray bottles, bingo bottles, paintbrushes, Liquid Watercolor™ paint and pipe cleaners. You may want to pre-fill bottles ahead of time with paint and pre-cut coffee filters into 2 inch strips for the petals.

Let's Get Started! Step 1. Use droppers, spray bottles, brushes or bingo bottles to apply Liquid Watercolor™ to two paper petal strips, dry and then gather the petals together.

Step 2. Wrap the base in a pipe cleaner or rubber band.

Furthermore: You can also use the flowers to decorate the tops of pencils. Once you've attached a flower to a pipe cleaner, simply wrap the pipe cleaner around the top portion of a pencil. Or, you can tape the flower to the top of the pencil by itself. Personalize the flower pencils by writing a name or a short message on a few of the petals. These make great gifts for loved ones.
