Watercolor Flowers for Mom
An Activity for School-Age:
Create colorful bouquets that won't wither or fade!
Before You Begin:
To create these lovely bouquets, you'll need the following materials: Texas snowflakes, pipe cleaners, Liquid Watercolor™, sprayers and droppers.
Create a unique, long-lasting bouquet for Mother's Day.
For a multi-day project, children can decorate their own pots or vases on one day, and then create the flowers on the second day.
Let's Get Started
Apply Liquid Watercolor™ to Texas snowflakes using droppers or sprayers and watch as the color spreads.
Mix several colors to create a completely unique, one-of-a kind flower.
Allow the Texas snowflake to dry completely.
Once dry, gather the circle in the center of each Texas snowflake and use a pipe cleaner to hold the flower together, leaving a stem.
You may put the flowers in a vase or flowerpot, or use another pipe cleaner to wrap around all the stems, holding the entire bouquet together.
