Petal Painting

Have you ever seen a flower, and wished that you could paint with its colors? Not only is this possible–it’s easier than you think!


All you need are 2 materials for this project:

  • Colorful flower petals
  • Paper


With a parent’s permission, go on a whimsical flower gathering wander. Remember–flowers are parts of living things, so always harvest with respect and kindness. Can you think of a way to “give back” to the plants? “Giving back” can look like you singing for the plant, giving it some water, picking up trash around it, or any other intentional gesture of gratitude you can think of. 

Watch this video to see how to paint with petals:
