Soda Bottle Art

It is finally start to feel like Spring around these parts.  
So the kids and I attempted making some Spring Blossoms with Soda Bottles.  

I had seen the idea here and thought we'd give it a try.

Empty 2 litter bottles
paint and brushes
poster board
paper plates

We first started making the branches for our flowers to go on. 
I loved seeing the different variations of this from the kids...
Then it was time to create colors.  I bought just the primary colors of Red, Yellow, and Blue so the kids could learn what makes purple or orange or green.  
This was a fun part for them as they created just the exact shade they wanted.
 Then we dipped the bottom of the pop bottles in the paint and created some fun spring blossoms.
 The thicker the paint - the larger the blossoms.
We would wash off the bottom of the soda bottle when we wanted to change colors.
It was a fun Spring Fever craft for the kids.
