Bleeding Flowers


I picked up these flower cutouts made out of a coffee filter like paper. They are meant to bleed washable marker or water colors when wet. I have been meaning to try this craft with the girls for awhile but I use a French press to make coffee so I don't have coffee filters in the house. If you do have coffee filters in the house this is such a simple fun activity. Or you can pick up these cool flowers for a couple bucks at Michaels. They also came in leaf shapes. Both girls made a stack of the flowers. I also picked up two mini plastic spray bottle. Note: The girls sprayed themselves as much as they did the paper!


Just color and spray!

Afterwards, I twisted several flowers together and taped them onto a bamboo skewer.


I had fun playing around with them too! 



I love the different tie die effects you can get.

Very fun! This has been on my to-do list for ages, too, maybe I'll get around to it sometime soon.

Those turned out great! I love the different things you did with them. We just used these last week for a classroom craft and they worked out on a large group too! http://whatarewedoingtodaymom.blogspot.com/2010/05/classroom-craft-watercolour-flowers.html
