Cherry Blossom Spring Art for Kids

I just love Cherry Blossom Trees. They are so sweet. An abundance of tiny, perfectly formed flowers that scream out SPRING IS HERE!

My other half knows just how much I love Cherry Trees and he really did put a HUGE smile on my face the other week when he brought me one for my own garden!! I always admire everybody elses so its so lovely to have my very own that I can watch grow and enjoy every Spring.

Today we have been creating our very own Spring Blossom and we want to share with you this lovely, simple art idea.

You will need:
Pink/White and Brown Paint
White/Black Paper
Twigs if you wish to make your art 3D
A soda/pop bottle

1. Dip the base of your pop bottle into your paint.
The bottom of a soda/pop bottle is the perfect shape to create beautiful 'spring blossom prints.You can use pink paint for cherry blossom or you can also use white paint. Depending on the colour paint you use, use either white or black paper to make sure your prints stand out.

2. Once you have a good amount of paint over your base you can now start printing, and creating your blossom tree on the paper.

Little N did her prints first and then as we do most days we went on a walk and collecting some twigs to add to her picture.

I also had a go and decided to paint my twigs on first and then create the blossom around the twigs.

I have pointed several of the Cherry Blossom Trees out to Little N including the one in our garden. It melts my heart now when we are out and about and she screams at the tops of her lungs when she spots them! So cute!

We have really been enjoying creating some flower art over the last few weeks and have several more we will also be doing soon. So far we have created:
Daffodils, Lupins, Tulips and Clovers

We have also been busy bees planting our seeds ready for some beautiful Summer Colour. 

So far we have planted:
Marigolds using seeds from last years plants that we had picked and saved. Sweet Peas, Hollyhocks, Delphiniums, Rudabekas, Tomatoes, Begonias and Pumpkins using the seeds we took from Pumpkin Carving last year.

Little N really enjoyed planting them loves watering them every few days even more.

You can follow us on Facebook and Pinterest for lots more ideas.
