Supplies: paper plates - two large and two small, watercolor or tempera paints, scissors, glue & brushes.
1. I let students paint their paper plates in any design they chose: swirls, dots, splatters, etc. Two large paper plates for the petals, one small paper plate for the center of the flower, and one small paper plate for the leaf.
2. Once dry, we flipped the plates over and drew, and then cut out the shape of petals around the edge of the two large plates (cutting one plate slightly smaller than the other). We cut out our leaf shapes, and the center of the flowers from the small plates.
3. Next, we glued the plates together, and then used a hole punch and the scraps to make a scattering dots in the center.
This was an incredibly simple, but successful project!
