We love flowers in our house! What better way to show someone you care than giving them roses?

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. cork board
  2. paint - green and red
  3. paintbrush
  4. plate
  1. My daughter wanted to make roses for Grandma so we began by squeezing out some red paint on a plate and then painting her little hand. I also bought some cork board from the local office supply shop. I love using cork as a canvas rather than the traditional white ones. It gives it a nice look and is something different!

  2. Sorry for the lack of photos but this one was hard to take pictures of since I didn't want red paint on my camera. :) After I painted my daughter's hand, she pressed it down three time for the roses. I added in green stems and leaves but older kiddos could paint this part on their own. Always take time to smell the roses! :)
