Who doesn’t love the look of watercolors? Over at the Create Laugh Learn house, we love finding different uses for our liquid watercolors. Even more exciting, is when I find a craft, or art project that I can create with things I already have. Cue paper plate watercolor flowers!
- Liquid watercolors
- Paper plates (four plates per flower)
- PVA Glue (school glue)
- Sequins (for the center of the flower, I used yellow ones)
I love projects that I can involve my two-year-old daughter in. Little C enjoyed painting the plates, and then letting me fill in the white spaces, while she moved on to the next plate. She also enjoyed putting the sequins in the middle of the flowers after everything was dry, and assembled. Little C loves sequins, so I try to use them as often as possible.
If your child is older, they can definitely do this project more independently. I had to cut out the flower shapes, and staple the flowers together, since Little C is far from being able to do that on her own. I found the idea for this craft over at PinkStripeySocks. You can find more details about how to create these beautiful flowers here. Happy crafting!
