Connie Bradley from Trussville, Alabama shares her original Art project, titled “Flower Box.”
Instructions: Prepare a wooden box with various compartments to hold items a child can use to create different flowers. Use different types of paper to create various size stems, leaves and flower patterns. Buttons, stones and other creative craft ideas can be added to the box to offer more than just paper.
In the box Katie, age 5, and I created, we decided to add lavender oil. Katie wanted the flowers to smell good, and I had lavender oil I use on the children’s pillows at night. In addition to the flower box, you will need newspaper, apron and cardboard or paper on a tray.
Katie designed the flowers in the finished photo, and enjoyed every part of this project from preparation through cleanup.
