A wonderful and simple way to create beautiful flowers each time. I used toilet paper rolls to stamp down these pretty flowers, this is how I envisioned the project but my daughter had her own ideas.

Toilet Paper Roll Flower Painting
This activity is great for spring or summer since we finally have flowers in our garden, my daughter loves gardening, and it was natural for us to bring flowers into our home.
While it’s fun to go outside and see the flowers, it’s just as fun to stay inside on rainy days and create flowers, too. The kids love being able to use a toilet paper roll to create this fun painting activity and I love that I have new spring artwork to hang up on the walls!

Toilet Paper Painting Instructions
I had several toilet paper rolls that I could cut slits into, I made them with varying widths. I then used the scissors to round out the corners so that they would look like petals.
I then pushed the slits flat and immersed them in paint, I had to press down each individual petal to ensure the paint covered it sufficiently. I then stamped it onto my paper to get a nice flower shape.
You can then use the plastic lid and dip it in paint and stamp it onto the middle portion of your flower. We painted our stems and leaves with a paintbrush.
My daughter did not really care to gently press down each flower petal into the paint and used the toilet paper roll more as a stamp. This was more fun for her and resulted in the paint being splashed onto my walls but it easily washed off. And my walls are red so not a big deal, lol.
