Painted Flower

Materials Needed

  • Flower outline - print on or stick to sturdy paper

  • Non-toxic Paint

  • Large Zipper Bag

Let's Create!

  • To begin, print off the image of the flower (or any other flower outline you/your little one likes! We recommend either printing it on sturdy paper (like construction paper) or cutting it out and gluing it onto the paper (so it does not rip easily like ours did!)

  • Choose which colors you would like for the flower - this is a great time to talk to your child about colors, describe to them what you are doing and/or help them choose! (I.E. "ooo let's pick purple for the flower petals, I like purple)

  • Slide the flower into the zipper bag. THEN hold the bag open and carefully put some blobs of paint onto the flower - placing the colors where you would like them. (For example - we put green on the stem, purple on the petals, and yellow in the center).

  • Zip the bag shut and show your little one how you can press down on the colors and make them move! The wonderful thing about this activity being so mess free is that you can leave the image in the bag and let your little one keep coming back to it!


  • **For children 6 months - not yet sitting unassisted we recommend helping them to press their hand on the image while laying down. They could us a toy to help them too - i.e. when they feel like slamming it down!
