FLOWER POWER

Grade: K-8
Age: 4-12

Springtime is flower time so why not fill your home or classroom with creative celebrations of nature in all of her colorful glory. Here are a number of ways for you to bring flowers and springtime into your home or classroom ... and get a head start on Mothers Day too.

FLOWERY NAPKIN RINGS

Take a paper towel tube, cut it into small sections (2"-3" long). Paint bright beautiful flowers on the tube pieces. Coat the finished product with a water-based sealer.

APRIL SHOWERS

Gather some old umbrellas (or buy some inexpensive new ones) and paint wonderful flower designs, suns, raindrops, sponge prints, or butterflies all over the umbrella. Its best to use fabric paint for this project but you can also use tempera paint with a touch of glue.

PAINT A FLOWER

...Just one flower. Its fun ... its easy ... it makes you feel good. Alexandra Boagey (age 10) painted this flower with acrylic paint.

BUTTER-FLOWERS

Combine butterflies and flowers for a super springtime artwork. Begin with a large sheet of paper (22" x 30") and divide into several squares and rectangles of every size. Then, fill the geometric spaces with bright butterflies and bold flowers. Use paint, markers, colored pencils or crayons or a combination of all media. You can even glue cut-out shapes onto your collage. Be sure to repeat the same colors throughout your butterflower collage.
