Fork Flower Painting
To create these flowers have the kids dip the back of a fork into paint.
Then tell them to press down on the paper and pull back making a "tulip" shape.
Have them repeat as many times as they wish.
Allow the fork prints to dry.
Once dry, have the children pain on stems and leaves.
Egg Carton Caterpillar Garden
We made a caterpillar face using construction paper, wiggly eyes, and a couple of green golf tees. We then glued it to 1/2 of an egg carton. We then planted grass by using a couple of spoon fulls of soil, and some grass seed. When watered daily, the grass will grow quickly.
Make Dandelions Using a Fork
You will need yellow paint, a fork, a piece of paper, and a green mark
Have the kids dip the back of a fork into some yellow paint.
Then tell them to press down on the paper and pull back making a circle shape first. Fill in the middle parts and let dry
Draw a stem with a green marker. You can leave the dandelion totally yellow or add a bit of orange paint for some depth.
This is a great activity for older children. Present the children with several different types of flowers that include their stems and leaves.. Have the students choose a flower and place it on a piece of paper. Assist the children in identifying the different parts of their flower and (if age appropriate) labeling them.
