Painting With Petals.








     My kids enjoyed this so much. We spent some time, so as not to disturb the bees, and plucked away carefully at some flowers in our yard. We used what we had on hand; some tea cups and a wooden juicer. We put a little water into each cup and filled them with bright petals. Each child took a turn pressing the color out of the petals. It was hard work and each child became tired doing it. I ended up helping them towards the end to squeeze out the last bits. Then we took the crushed petals out and were left with colored water. It was so fun and we really enjoyed taking the time to make our own water colors!
