Get messy with some paint, and make a pretty flower painting.



Time: 1 hour
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's, Over 10's, Any Age
Level: Medium

Materials
Acrylic paints including three shades of green, and brown
Paint brush
Water
Several sheets of paper
Wet wipes (or wet cloth)



Method
Lay the sheets of paper over lapping one another.



Saturate the paint brush with green paint, and flick the paint off your child's index finger. Repeat numerous times.



Wipe their finger clean with a nappy wipe (or wet cloth) and clean the brush in the water between each colour. Repeat the splattering of paint until you have used three shades of green, and a brown.





Take the sheets of a paper apart, and leave to dry for half an hour, or until the paint is set.



Choose a piece of paper from the splattered art, and add detail with acrylic paint.





You could trim to size, and glue to the front of a greeting card.
