This project makes for a great introduction to painting. And if you give students just the primary colors or red, yellow and blue, they can mix their own green.

1. Fold a tabloid or larger sheet of paper in half. Paint a blue vase in the center of the bottom half.

2. Paint 5 – 6 yellow dots in the top half of the paper.

3.  Paint red circle leaves around each flower.

4.  Use the yellow and blue paint to mix green and connect each flower to the vase. Add leaves where there is space.
