Cork Stamped Flowers

Notice the tiny hands.. M2 did this project with me all by herself without M1. She felt so special, just a taste of what's to come when M1 starts preschool next week. It will be quite a change not having her around for a few hours two mornings a week! M2 walked around carrying her picture saying, "I made it!" She is always so proud when she does a craft. I love it...

Supplies- *Wine Cork, *Blue&Green Construction Paper, *White Paint, *Cup or Bowl for Dipping, *Glue Stick, *Scissors.
1. Cut out 2-3 stems & a few leaves using the green construction paper. (I did this myself since m2 is a bit too small to be cutting. If your child is a bit older they could do this on their own.)
2. Have your little one glue the stems & leaves onto the blue piece of paper.
3. Pour a small amount of the white paint into a bowl.
4. Dip the cork into the paint & begin to stamp the white circles at the top of each stem. (Below-M2 w/ my assistance.)

5. Continue stamping until the desired amount of circles create a flower appearance. I love that each flower looks like a hydrangea. They are my favorite.
                                               6. Allow time to dry.
Enjoy! s.b.
