Start by discussing texture. Ask students to feel different objects and describe how each feels different. Then talk more specifically about flowers and plants and what textures occur in nature.
- Prepare background. Place paper over textured surface and rub surface lightly with broad side of a crayon. You may overlap several colors for a different effect. Sponge painting the background is another option.
- Painting process. Pour small amounts of paint in trays. Press child’s hand in desired color and carefully press on paper (this will become the flower). Add one or more flowers to complete stamping. Using paint brushes, have the children add leaves and details to complete their paintings.
- Print name legibly on the front of the paper (at least an inch from the edge so the name will not be cut off).
