Some activities you know you will return to again and again with children. My girls loved creating art with rose petals. It is definitely something we will be doing in the holidays. These are photos from last year which I never got round to writing about. It is acting as a reminder for my to do this activity again.

It started with me getting some beautiful roses. They looked lovely, but I hate it when they are starting to get past their best and only a few flower heads remain.

I thought it would be nice to collect all the petals together so the girls could play with them. This is a lovely sensory play activity in itself. The petals feel so soft and they smell delicious.

The twins just loved exploring the petals. rose petal art

I started off just giving the girls the petals along with some art materials, glue, glitter and sequins. They soon got stuck in. The twins were 3 at the time and simply enjoyed sticking the petals onto paper with sequins.

This was such a lovely set up I just had to join in. I thought they would make beautiful flower fairies. This was Rose Fairy.

I liked the first drawing but it stood out more with a black outline. rose petal art

Molly loved this idea and made her own flower fairy using the petals. She was 6 when she created this. I can’t wait to try again and see how their art has developed. rose petal art

We also made a butterfly from the petals.

This was the twins slightly abstract artwork. It is still really beautiful.

 If you pressed the petals first it would make a lovely card. rose petal art
