This Toilet Paper Roll Flower Painting Activity is a great activity for toddlers to be creative and use objects around the house to create beautiful works of art. They’ll be so proud of their independence in being able to create beautiful artwork.
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. This would be a great toddler activity or for preschoolers as well.

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!

Recommended Spring Books for Kids
Read your favorite spring books to get kids ready to discover the flowers they’ll be seeing soon in their backyard.
I even use this time to tell the kids to make up their own fun book ideas as well. Who knows, maybe they’ll create an art book full of their very own artwork fun!
The biggest thing to remember is that this isn’t a hard activity to do. The kids will really enjoy being able to showcase their crafting ability and make their own beautiful flowers using simple craft supplies.
Just make certain to let it dry and then hang it up to showcase! Then just have them change out the colors that they’re using to make a whole different colorful flower idea!
In my opinion, you can never have too many bright painted flowers in your home as it’s an easy way to bring in some sunshine and cheer. Let the kids get as creative as they want!

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 the 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 in our stems and leaves with a paint brush.
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.
