Afraid of any craft for kids that involves paint? Me, too! But fear no more with these beautiful paper watercolor flowers. The kids get to paint and you get to enjoy a stress free craft.
My kids love absolutely any craft that involves paint. I personally find painting projects stressful because of the mess. But one way I’ve found to let the kids paint without me being a frenzied stress ball is watercolors. Watercolors aren’t nearly as lethal as acrylic paint as they are easy to wipe off. And they are so pretty that kids love to paint with them. Gather some supplies and the kids to make this fun watercolor flower craft for kids.
To make watercolor flowers, you will need:
Watercolor paints and brush
Small dish of water
White muffin liners
Flatten out 5-6 (depending on the size you would like your flowers) white muffin paper liners. Paint each white muffin liner your color of choice. Set them aside and allow to dry.
Once the watercolor muffin papers are dried, arrange them into a flower shape by slightly overlapping
and building them up on top of each other. Place one muffin paper in the center of the flower as the center of the flower.
Glue popsicle sticks to the back of the flower to reinforce the muffin papers.
Watercolor flowers make a cute mirror decoration for a girl’s room or as a surprise gift for a teacher, neighbor or grandparent.

These are darling and yes, I remember from when my kids were done how important plastic tablecloths were! Thanks for sharing this with us on Throwback Thursday – I can’t wait to see what you’ll bring next time!
Thanks for linking up at “A Little Bird Told Me” Wednesday link party! You have been featured on Mama’s Happy Hive blog! 🙂
So cute! Thanks for sharing 🙂
You are right – acrylic colors are easy to remove and just after the play you can just put clothes to the dirty laundry. There are special plastic aprons in shops. You just need to wipe it off after the play with a damp dishrag and it’s clean.
I’m usually more concerned about my kitchen table! 😉 But we do put down a plastic table cloth.
