Make and gather your own bouquet.
- 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.
