Paint Splotch Flowers

The first grade students used colorful paint and folded paper to create these flowers.  We began class by reading Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert and talked about the way flowers grow (some from seeds, some from bulbs).  Each student received a piece of paper, and folded it to create 4 “V” folds.  Inside these folds, the students dabbed different paint colors, then folded the entire paper up and pressed gently.  When opened, each fold resulted in the blossom of a flower.  They then added stems, leaves, and grass.
