Being in a classroom with 14 kids means we go through a lot of paper goods. Which leaves us with a big stash of toilet paper rolls. So when searching for spring time crafts I came across this pin I excited to be using up the pile of rolls we had. The flowers in the link had been colored with markers but I felt paint would give the flowers more texture.
I placed paint on paper plates and let my twos use their fingers or dip their flowers in the paint. They liked making flowers but quickly became bored with trying to cover their flower in paint. Most of the flowers ended up looking like the one below, covered in some places and just dipped in other.
