Painting With The Yellow Flowers

Flynn loves her dandelions so much, I try to take full advantage of them during the time they are here. We used them again this year for a craft project, and she had a wonderful time. So did Peyton and Rhett, for the record. : ) If you would like to try this super simple fun craft project yourself, here are some pictures to show you how...


On a beautiful spring day, gather your supplies...washable paint, sturdy paper, paper plates to pour the paint on, and popsicle sticks to mix the paint.
Then pick some pretty dandelions...sturdy long stem ones work the best.


Find a nice, shady spot outside and get started. : )
Pour the paint onto the paper plates and get painting! Dip the flower straight into the paint, and dab off the excess. : )


After you are finished, spread your artwork out to dry.  And while your beautiful pieces of artwork are drying, feel free to spend some time outside on that beautiful, spring day. : )

  1. That is the perfect afternoon craft for us. Only we'll have to be inside because it is cold here today. I think it will be fun regardless!
