Plum Blossoms for the Chinese New Year

First and second grade artists learned about some of the traditions of Chinese New Year.  One of the traditions is the display of fresh plum and cherry  blossoms to signify new life and new beginnings. We used brown liquid  watercolor paint and straws to make the tree branches, using our breath to spread the paint across the pages. We used cotton swabs to paint the flower blossoms.
