Claude Monet painted many different types of flowers such as gardens, ponds, or vases.

We are totally loving this theme. And especially considering we’re all about being creative. And of course bonus points for studying artists in preschool, right?

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.

What you’ll need

  • Inspiration Photo
  • Paper
  • Pokey Ball
  • Paper Frame
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Here’s how to do it

Set Up

  • Set out the inspiration photo and any additional materials.

Prompts

  • What colors and shapes do you see on Monet’s painting? 
  • How will you create flowers on your paper? 
  • Could you use a pokey ball as a stamping tool?
  • Will you add any details to your flowers? Leaves, stems, centers? 

Observe

  • Did the child stamp with the pokey ball? 
  • Did he demonstrate fine motor control with his hands?

The little guy intuitively knew to use the pokey ball to stamp. It definitely wasn’t the first time that we’ve explored this idea, though. If you remember a while back, we did this fun Dandelion Invitation to Create Flower Art. Similar concept. Totally different outcome.

I love seeing how his art has changed in the last few years. That’s one of the best things about being a homeschool mama! You’re there to experience the firsts, see their progress, and to watch your little kids grow.
