Oh, how we love spring!!! It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for the sunshine. In honor of spring, let’s make a scented flower creation!
Scented Flower Painting
- Package of Jello
- Salt shaker
1) Ask your child to paint a flower (Princess wanted to paint a “heart” flower). If your child doesn’t have the ability to paint a flower, it’s okay. Just have them paint the paper. Later, you can cut a flower shape out of their painting (I made sure to get permission from the painter!).
2) While the paint is still wet, shake powdered jello onto the painting. We used a salt shaker filled with jello. Since we do all things pink, we used strawberry jello!
3) On a blue piece of construction paper, add a green rectangle for grass. If your child can use scissors, they could make small snips into it for grass. Cut out the flowers and glue them on!
My favorite thing was that they loved snipping the “grass”. My oldest said, “What a great idea, mom!” A little encouragement is always helpful!
I cut out Little D’s flowers, so she drew stems.
