I had the kids each paint on a clipboard and after one round of kids at the station, I added a couple of paper towels under the paper to absorb all the excess water.
This is our class craft from last week, the flowers were for a spring window display in the hallway. They would also be great to hand out for mother's day and easy to make a few (or a lot) at home. I think the kids would have made twenty each if they could have. They really enjoyed creating these.
The supplies were all things our teacher had on hand, - pre-cut watercolour papers, liquid watercolours (I think food colouring/water would work great), science droppers, and chenille stems.
