This project is a lot of sensory fun for kids as they squish their hands in the colorful paint. Kids will enjoy watching the colors swirl and mix together on their hands and on the canvas.

The beauty of these flowers is that your kids don’t need the added step of cleaning their hands between pressing.

Have your child make prints with their hands on the canvas (shaped vertically) to make flowers. I recommend three across, two in the next row, and one or two random one to give it a non-regulated feel.

Now that the flower bouquet has been made have your child clean off their hand. Give them a plate with green paint and have them make a stem for each flower. Then make fingerprints along the stem to make leaves on the flower stems.
