Earlier today, I was tidying up around the house and was going to throw away the flowers I had purchased last week, but I quickly realised these flowers would create a wonderful play opportunity for Chloe.
What I love about this painting with flowers activity is that it can work for babies, toddlers or older kids because it’s an open-ended activity and will spark creativity regardless of age. Just set the activity up and let the kids create the magic.
I gathered all the materials I needed for my painting with flowers activity and headed to the kitchen table to set everything up.
Benefits of Painting with Flowers for Kids
This simple painting with flowers activity has so many wonderful learning benefits such as, but not limited to:
- Fine motor skill development
- Sensory building
- Colour recognition
- Numeracy (we lined up the flowers and counted them out together)
- Nurturing creativity
- Building self-esteem
- Creating childhood memories
While Chloe was painting, it also allowed for her and I connect, to be in the moment and to create memories. Too many times we get caught up in our busy life, but this easy arts and craft activity was just what we needed.
Wishing you all a great day,
