Grab some washable paint and toilet paper rolls to make these beautiful tulip stamp art. Don’t have any toilet paper rolls in your recycling bin? Cut paper towel rolls in half or more to use as the stamps. I selected bright colors for our flowers but choose whatever makes your child happy.
- Recycled cardboard tube (toilet paper or paper towel roll)
- Washable paint (spring colors)
- Paint brush
- Small plastic condiment container or cup
- Glitter (optional)
- Paper plate
- White cardstock
- Start by gathering all of your supplies. This makes it easier to craft with little ones. Leaving a toddler or preschooler unattended with paint is never a great idea. Ha!
- Next, grab your cardboard tube and squeeze the top to form a petal shape. See the picture above as an example.
- Add at least three different color paint to the paper plate. Make sure to include green for the leaves.
- Now dip the petal shape cardboard tube in the paint then add to the white cardstock. Make sure the tube is facing upward because this will be the middle of the tulip.
- Dip the tube in the paint again then stamp the left side of the current print. Go ahead and stamp the right side to form the tulip.
- Paint a stem starting at the top of the tulip using green paint. Dip a petal shaped tube in green paint then add leaves to the stem.
- Add a little water to the small cup. Dip the paint brush in the water then dab a little paint from the tulip to create watercolor paint.
- Paint the inside of the tulip then the inside of the leaves.
- Finally, sprinkle green glitter on the stem and leaves. You can also use matching glitter to sprinkle on the tulips.
This was such a fun art project to create with my boys. However, it was a hot mess trying to create these tulips with my toddler. Paint was all over the place. He was trying to stamp the entire paper and the table. It was a funny experience because he was having a great time. I was finally able to assist him with creating a few recognizable tulips. So I highly recommend this craft for preschoolers or older children.
