In the midst of all our test prep, I decided my kids need an afternoon of art. I’m a huge component of watercolor in the classroom so I decided these 3-D flowers were a great idea. It’s easy to set up, beautiful and best of all, EASY to clean! All you need for this project is 3 sheets of white paper per student, watercolor, crayons, scissors and glue.
Each child was to use crayons and watercolor to cover the entirety of the 2 sheets of paper. I encourage them to use patterns and many colors. The third sheet is the background and was only suppose to be painted with one color with minimal patterns.
I told my kiddos I wanted their flowers to pop off the backgrounds. After all three papers dry. I model cutting different shapes of petals and creating the center of your circle. After that, students are free to cut, layer and glue on the pedals. I also showed them how to bend the paper to make sure it’s popping off the paper. They turned out beautiful and each one is very unique!!
