Flower Pot Painting Craft For Kids
Your child can start by painting the background, blue for sky and green for grass.
Keira chose to paint the whole thing blue, then add green grass over the top.
Next, she got started on her insects. First she made a bumblebee.
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.
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.
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.
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.
From butterflies to bumblebees, you can add whatever you want to these painted flower pots. It was actually Keira’s idea to add the ant.
Any mom would love getting this for Mother’s Day!
This also makes a great summer craft that’ll keep the kids entertained when school’s out for summer.
