This free set comes with plain and numbered flowers that are a variety of colors. Tape to popsicle sticks as hand-held props, or stick a magnetic piece on back of each flower to display on a cookie sheet.
- Stamping Flowers
Use flower-shaped cookie cutters, dipping them into paint and then onto paper.
- Flower Painting
Dip flowers into paint and then press onto paper.
- Watercolors and Flowers
This is a two step process. First, paint the paper with watercolors. Then, glue foam flowers on top.
- Painting With Flowers
I took stems of artificial flowers and placed them at the easel along with a tray of paint and paper. The children can dip the flowers into the paint and press them onto the paper.

Since Mother’s Day is around the corner, we will be making our flower magnets.
