Painting with Dandelions


After a bit of inspiration from Jen at The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman. I decided to try something that I have never tried before. The girls looked curiously at the paint and dandelions and wondered how they were going to paint with the bright colored weed. After dipping the tip of the dandelion in water, the girls painted small construction paper eggs with the plant by dabbing it into watercolors and then onto the paper. They used a variety of colors to paint the eggs. After the eggs dried, we glued them around the border of a colored paper plate. (I cut out the center circle and cut into an egg for them to decorate later. No waste, here!) Last, I tied a ribbon on the top to hang it. Wallah- a colorful Easter wreath! They turned out really cute. To get a better idea of how to create your own wreath, be sure to stop by Jen's blog. If I can get this computer to work better, I'll be sure to post our project.

Yeah! I was actually able to upload my pics!












Happy Easter and many blessings!

Jen
