While this Flower Painting Hair Design – Nature Craft for Kids tutorial focuses on hair and flower printing, children can expand and adapt the concept by filling the template entirely with natural materials.

This will involve utilising and re-imagining petals, sticks and leaves to create new facial features.

The twist on the craft would be a great way to involve older siblings and children.

Gathering Natural Materials

On your next walk or gardening session, provide your Arty Crafty Kids with a bucket and ask them to fill it with natural materials.

These could be sticks, fallen leaves or perhaps flowers nearing the end of their bloom and are ready for deheading.

Flower Painting

Apply the flower with paint by simply dipping it directly into paint or by covering the petals with a stroke of a paintbrush.

The dipping method is easier (and probably more fun) for toddlers and preschoolers, however the flowers could be easily overloaded with paint and may leave big splodges rather than prints. In this instance, encourage the Arty Crafty Kids to do the first flower print onto a piece of scrap paper.

Creating Flower Prints

With a loaded flower or leaf, firmly press it down onto the template and swiftly remove to avoid any sticky petals.

Print along the hair line.

Adding Natural Elements

Once the painting is complete, add some left over natural elements to the design!

Child with a Bun

This template gives children some added direction. The bun can be filled with a combination of prints and natural elements – perhaps entirely with natural elements!

Child without Hair

In contrast to ‘Child with Bun’ this template is entirely open-ended!

Children can print high, low, with prints and natural materials.

It could even be turned into a self portrait.

I hope your children enjoy the process of Flower Painting Hair Design – Nature Craft for Kids and if you have any left over natural materials, here are few more ideas to try…
