Handprint Flower Mural

I love brightening up the hallway outside of the classroom. A few weeks ago we made this colorful spring mural. It is so simple! 
I just rolled out freezer paper and had the kiddos choose a color that they wanted their flower to be.  My assistant teacher, Natalie, and I painted their hands (to save time and mess) but they could totally paint their own. Then they pressed their hand somewhere on the paper. After they were finished, I painted stems and grass. It looks bright and happy in the hallway! :) I will cut the flowers out and send them home at the end of the year. :) 

( PS- I wrote their names in matching marker near their flower so I could identify them later.)
