Let's Paint with Dandelions


Simple Dandelion Invitation to create:
Paint with Dandelions.

This is an ultimate, crazy-simple, nature, summer, fun, experimentation project with beautiful outcome and all you need are two supplies.  For us, it's even a "Big and Small" makers project.

Curious? Come join me below....

(I have to be honest: it might not only be for kids. I joined and have have an ombre summer stationary set for myself, too! Big and small, right?)

Are you ready?

Let's go:This is what you need:Dandelions + paper.
Yes, that's it.

No mixing, not pounding. We've tried all of that and found that the intense color achieved by simply using a dandelion as a brush and "colouring" with it achieved our favorite color!

That's it!
So send your littles out with a basket to collect as many dandelions as they can.
Set out the paper and draw, draw, draw using dandelions as the color source.
- Draw patterns
- Draw something
- Make a drawing with pen or pencil and then, "paint" over the top of this drawing to add color.

Big, little, young or old, I find that simple ideas and experiments are like gold. These are the projects that we can fit in during a busy school year or repeat myself, in order to send off a note with a personal touch. I'd love to see what you do with this idea. For children, it's both and activity and a project. 

I look forward to meeting you again soon. I have several projects that I'm excited to share with you very soon and today, send you Willowday Wishes!
