Flower Mural
An Activity for Preschoolers:
A variation on the old crayon favorite!


Before You Begin:
Set out art trays, Colorations® Liquid Watercolor paint, Colorations® No-Drip Foam Paint, cardboard frames, paint scrapers and plastic forks.


Activity Goals:
  • To let children see how colors blend by overlapping different colors of tissue, also giving them a sense of accomplishment as they can do this on their own!

    Furthermore:
    Frames make wonderful keepsakes and gifts for loved ones. Try using white paint to add contrast to marbled designs.
