Cherry Blossom Paintings {from Pinterest to Real Life}

Check out all of my Pinterest to Real Life experiences in my Completed Pins board.

I pinned this idea from Alpha Mom into my Spring board a few weeks ago.

Kristin saw my pin and the planning began. We decided to meet at her home to make cherry blossom paintings with our 9 children (well, actually 8 since the baby didn’t get anywhere near the paint).

We raided our craft paint and Kristin collected small bottles. (We decided the smaller bottles would be easier for the kids to handle than 2 liters.)

Last week, all of the littles filled Kristin’s table and painted away. First, they painted tree branches or whole trees with brown paint.

Then, they got busy stamping pink flowers with the bottom of the bottles. Our bottles didn’t make the center part of the flowers, but the kids didn’t seem to mind very much. Emahry chose to use a paint brush to go back and paint the centers (and some letters).

It was lots of fun seeing the kids’ personality differences come out while their were crafting. Some were exact and wanted their finished product to look like the original while others took the materials and went in their own unique direction.

Everyone had a great time creating!

We ended up hanging our 5 cherry blossom painting in a row on the wall to create our own scenic walk. :-)

Today we dyed eggs. Even Alaine wanted to dye one.

Kristin,
How fun! I think we might try to dye some with my sister since she's comes home for Spring Break on Saturday.

How fun!

My cherry tree is covered with white blossoms, not pink. The peach trees had pink blossoms, though, as did the apricot.

This looks like a fun project! My children would love it!

What a lovely idea - we don't have cherry blosom but do have a forsythia with yellow blossom and I know a little one that would love to try this.

Thank you for linking to Kid's Co-op this week
