Handprint flower fun

We haven’t done any hand prints for awhile and so we added some springtime to our classroom by making some handprint flowers…

The children started by making stems with strips of sponges dipped in green paint…

Then the children painted their own hands. Sometimes, I will have a child that may not like to get messy if I paint their hands but they don’t mind painting their own hands…

Then the children pressed their hands on the paper to complete their flowers…

Our flowers didn’t always end up exactly on the top of the stems since the children did this process all on their own. I explained to the children that we were using the paint to make handprint flowers and stems but then let the children explore the creative process from there…

And we had some beautiful handprint flowers as a result…











And you have to love this beautiful garden of flowers!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
