This month we are hosting an 'Exploring Famous Artists' series. Keep checking back as each day we will be adding new activities inspired by famous artists.
To make a piece of Monet inspired artwork you will need:
- finger paints (green and blue)
- paper plate
- cupcake liners (green, white and pink)
How we created our Monet inspired Water Lilies painting
Daisy (21 months) loved getting messy as she painted a paper plate using blue and green finger paints.
While she was busy painting I made the lily pads. Inspired by the lily pads 'A Little Pinch Of Perfect' used on their Monet artwork I decided to make our lily pads from cupcake liners. I cut a triangle out of green cupcake liners to make them look like lily pads.
I helped Daisy glue the lily pads to the paper plate pond and then we added some white and pink lilies. To make the Lilies I cut off the outer edge of the pink and white cupcake liners and then snipped towards the middle to create petals. I scrunched them up a bit and Daisy helped to stick them down.
Our water lily painting was quick and easy to make but quite effective I think! This artwork is part of our 'Exploring Famous Artists' series. Click on the image below to be inspired by more famous artists.
