Fingerprint Bluebonnet Craft for Kids
It is always an exciting day when we spot the first bluebonnets in Texas. We have a few around our house and at our church, but just gazing at the amazing bluebonnets over the ranches and plains is just breathtaking. I'm a sucker for babies in bluebonnets. Our usual bluebonnet spot was not so lush this year, but there were a few, so I plopped my sweet toddler down in them and took a few pictures! (The other two boys were sick…thank you, Spring.)
D helped me make these cute little bluebonnet crafts to keep the bluebonnets alive in our house…all throughout the year!
- canvas panels (we used 5×7 canvases)
- blue, green, white, and purple craft paint
- paper plate
- paint brush, optional
- Carefully pour out a quarter sized dollop of each color paint on a paper plate.
- Have your child use their finger or a paintbrush to draw a stem and leaves for the bluebonnet(s).
- Let dry slightly, to avoid the colors blending together.
- Paint the petals for the bluebonnets with blue paint on a finger or thumbprint.
- Let dry.
- Use a fingertip dipped in white or purple to create the purple dots that appear on some bluebonnets and white tips, too!
- Let dry and hang on the wall to enjoy throughout the year.
