Flower Pot Painting Craft For Kids

You won't need many supplies to make this flower pot painting craft.

Your child can start by painting the background, blue for sky and green for grass.

Kids can get as creative as they want with their painted flower pots.

Keira chose to paint the whole thing blue, then add green grass over the top.

Keira had some flower pot painting ideas of her own.

Next, she got started on her insects. First she made a bumblebee.

Painting flower pots is easy for kids to do on their own.

She was very focused and after the bumblebee, she made more insects and added a few flowers. For the grand finale, she made fingerprint clouds at the top.

Little Keira was pretty proud of her work when it was all done.

Well, it wasn’t completely done.

Once you make the insects, you'll need to touch them up

Right now this ant just looks like a red blob and the flowers are floating in the air.

What a difference a black Sharpie can make!

Looks like our friendly bumblebee earned his stripes.

Hand painted flower pots are so easy to make.

I actually had to Google whether or not caterpillars had antennae…I’ve never gotten close enough to notice. Apparently they do, though they’re shorter than normal insect antennae.

Who knew that caterpillars had antennae?

When everything is dry, you’ll want to spray your flower pot with sealant to make it waterproof. Let it dry overnight, then check out how pretty your flower pot painting craft turned out.
