DIY Holi Themed Flowers

Hello peeps!

I and Shaunak together crafted Holi themed flowers to present to his playschool teachers using paper plates and bowls. Painting is one of the best fine motor skills development activities for toddlers. The random colors and strokes by my two year old toddler perfectly suited the Holi theme.


All you need is:

1. Paper plate
2. Paper bowl
3. Various oil based acrylic colors or water colors
4. Embellishments like pom-poms, acrylic stone embellishments
5. Glue
6. Ice cream stick
7. Paper strip

To make:

1. Paint the bowl and plate with colors of your choice.

2. Let them dry for an hour.

3. Cut the plate and bowl to form a flower-like shape, I did this part of the activity.

4. Embellish the flower using pom-poms, acrylic stone embellishments and glue.

5. Paste the ice-cream stick on the back of the plate.

6. Attach a paper strip with glue on one of the petals and write your message.

Shaunak was very excited! As he planned to give them to his playschool teachers, he practiced it number of times and giggled!

Learning Opportunities:

1. Fine motor skills

2. Painting skills

3. Hand eye co-ordination
