The dainty flowers cost around £2 each and are the perfect crafty way to fill 30-60 minutes on a rainy afternoon or a slow morning. They come with a mini paintbrush and a set of 4 paints; red, green, yellow and blue, to paint the flower with.
They sat, with faces of concentration and talk of "this is so fun" and "I love painting my flower, I'm making it really pretty," for around 40 minutes while they mixed colours together to see what they could make and enjoyed decorating their flowers in the colours they wanted. They were both rather pleased with the results and were proud to show them off to Daddy when he came home from work. The flowers are now beautifully displayed on their bedroom windowsills and I'm planning another trip into town to purchase lots more cute items from Wilko's arts and crafts range to replenish my ' big box of crafty bits.'
