This was a project some of my Grade 5,6 students made during the last couple weeks of school this year. I found the lesson HERE on the website: "Pink Stripey Socks". It's a cheap project that can yield some fantastic and complex results. My students really took their time in deciding how they wanted their petals to look! I pulled out lots of the crafty supplies to use as decorations: glitter, glass blobs, sequins, gems, buttons, pom poms, etc. We also used liquid watercolours to paint these but regular watercoours or any type of paint, really, would work. The key, I found, is to use the really thin cheap-o white paper plates. I can usually find them at the Dollar Store but find they're getting harder and harder to locate- I had to hunt around at a few different stores to find them.
Overall a really fun and colourful project!
