1 Look at a flower, garden, bouquet, paintings, or photographs of flowers. Notice the colors and shapes of the leaves and petals. Imagine some big, colorful blossoms.
2 Cover your work area with newspaper. Paint a flower, or a whole bouquet of blossoms, with Crayola® Washable Watercolors and Watercolor Brushes. Fill the paper with color.
3 Experiment with how much water you use. To get intense colors use more paint and less water. Mix colors to create new tints and shades. Dry.
4 Plants have many parts that keep flowers alive and growing. If you like, paint a second flower that includes the roots, stem, leaves, and petals. Dry.
