Did you know that this year is the 100th anniversary of Washington, DC's National Cherry Blossom Festival?  I've always been fascinated with the lush, pink blooms that cover Japanese cherry trees every spring.  Even if Washington is too far away to enjoy the festivities, you can still celebrate at home by making your own cherry blossom art!  Rachel from AlphaMom figured out that she could use an empty soda bottle as a flower stamp, quickly and easily creating her own sakura blossom picture in just minutes.  It's pretty enough to frame and hang on the wall, but simple enough for children to master!  [how to make easy cherry blossom art]

Project estimate:

  • Poster board, on hand or $0.50
  • Paint, on hand or $1 and up
  • Empty soda bottle, on hand

Total:  Free and up

    I wonder if you could use the smaller bottles to make it? I need to look at them now.

    are you kidding me? I could’ve just used a soda bottle instead of handpainting petal after petal after petal on a cherry blossom tree?!? I gotta try this!
