March Blogger Challenge – Show Off Your Painting Skills

Finally, spring is in the air, so what better way to make the most of the gorgeous scenery than by dusting off your paint brush? This month, we want you to re-create the beauty of nature by painting some bright and colourful flowers with your children. For more details on the challenge please visit Tots 100 and read on for some top tips from our very own Creative Crafter, Emma Hull. Make sure to include in your post which tip helped inspire you and your children.

•    If you’d like to paint in your garden, or any other outside space, remember to take something to lean on as well as a pot of water for you to wash your paintbrushes in

•    Create an effective blossom print by dipping your fingers in paint and using your fingertips for the flowers. Don’t stop there! Experiment with potato prints cut in to different shapes -  this will really give your work of art that extra special touch

•    Find materials around the house to add to the painting, giving it a 3D effect. Why not paint an old bottle cap and stick it in the centre of a flower, really bringing your painting to life?
