It never ceases to amaze me what my children will find to create with. Q-tips are always a favorite with my 5-year old and on this day they became a favorite of mine as well. Watching her transform q-tips and a styrofoam ball into a beautiful creation was wonderful.

How We Did It

Q-tip Flowers

My daughter had started this project and I grabbed a few things to join her. I wasn't sure exactly where this was going, but I liked following along with her creative idea!

Q-tip Flowers
We sat and cut q-tips in half. This was a little hard for her and took some extra mommy muscle to get them all cut.
Q-tip Flowers
Emma began to stick the q-tips into the styrofoam ball. What would she make I wondered...a sun, a planet.....a flower, of course!
Q-tip Flowers
She added color to the ball using watercolor paints which was great fun to see how the watercolors looked on different textures.

When the flower was all painted and dry Emma added a pipe cleaner stem and showed them off in a little vase that evening.
