Large scale art: flowers

If you saw our Easter bunny craft idea last week you might have noticed they were living in a beautiful flower meadow. Here’s how the children made their large-scale flower meadow. 

Flower art for kids. Large scale collaborative art - so pretty!

Flower Art: large scale collaborative art

We used a big roll of wallpaper to make a large scale collaborative piece of art. This kind of art is great as a wall display, or as the backdrop for a puppet show or play landscape.

We cut some grass shapes in dish-washing scrubbing pads to make some stamps to create grass.

The girls used paint brushes to add stalks, then sketched their flowers with pencil and painted them in.

Once dry the finished art work makes a beautiful mural but also a great backdrop for play. We stuck our flower meadow to two sides of a cardboard box to make a home for our Easter bunnies. {Click through to see how to make the Easter bunny craft!}

It’s great to sometimes up-scale children’s painting to a bigger size and wonderful for kids to collaborate to produce a group work of art.

What play landscape could you paint this week?
