Kids’ painting and drawing develop creativity and imagination, and unique painting projects develop them even better! Do not limit your kids to paintbrushes, let them use everything. Blooming sakura can be easily drawn with cotton buds, a cotton pad, cork, overwrap and even bottle bottoms. We are sure that painting will captivate the child so much that he or she will try out all 5 ways of painting a flowering tree. It is easy to turn this spring picture into a greeting card or, if you frame it, to decorate a room and admire this cute children’s creation for a long time.
The supplies are colored paper, acrylic and gouache paints, a glue stick, a pencil, scissors, a marker, a rubber elastic, overwrapping, cotton buds, a clothes peg, cotton pegs and wine corks, an empty plastic bottle.
Painting With Cotton Buds
Take a black sheet of paper and draw a tree with a pencil, cut it out. Glue the tree to a blue sheet, take a bunch of cotton buds, secure them with an elastic. Dip the buds into pink paint and stamp them on the tree and all around to imitate blooms. Add some white ‘blooms’, too, using white paint.
Painting With A Plastic Bottle
Take a black tree and glue it to a yellow sheet. Using a plastic bottle – its bottom – leave stamps of white and pink paint on the sheet.
Painting With Pimpled Overwrapping
Take a ready black tree on a bright sheet or paper and stamping the overwrapping first into paint and then onto the sheet, make your blooming tree.
Painting With Wine Cork Stamps
Take a ready black tree on a bright sheet or paper and stamping the wine corks first into paint and then onto the sheet, make your blooming tree.
Painting With Cotton Pads
First, take one half of your cotton pad and fold it, secure the piece with a clothes pin. The rest you know – just stamp your tree with bright paints using this little stamp.
Create a little Japanese girl under the tree using colored paper and a glue stick – just cut out some parts and glue them to the sheet. Frame the piece and enjoy the look – sakura is blooming right now!
