Watercolors made from fresh flowers

Spring is a great time of year to pick flowers together with your children and use it in unusual ways. Make watercolors with fresh flowers.

Mama Allison on the blog Learn play imagine she decided to try to make water colors together with her children with the help of fresh flowers. If she hadn’t succeeded, we certainly wouldn’t have written this text, so let’s start the procedure.

For a start, together with your children, go in search of flowers, choose brightly colored flowers so that your colors are also bright.


When you find the flowers, put them in plastic bags with a cap (without stems and leaves), heat one cup of water, but not too hot, and pour warm water over them. 250 milliliters of water will be enough for four different colors. After that, place the bags on the work surface and lightly roll over the flowers with a rolling pin so that the flowers release as much color as possible, and then leave the flowers in the water for a few hours.


The result that Allison and her son got was amazing, orange flowers gave the best color, extremely bright, pink flowers gave purple, blue flowers gave the brightest color, while red gave nothing resembling red but some greenish color.


After the flowers have released their color, strain them into bowls, give the kids a brush and paper, and let them create works of art with floral colors.
