Spring Flower Challenge



Win a Capow! Superhero Experience

This is a 5-day challenge  to draw or paint a bunch of Spring flowers each day for five days, starting with closed buds on day one. By the end of the five days in a normal warm house you should have a lovely, bright, colourful bunch of flowers. This works best with Daffodils or Tulips, which you should be able to buy for about a pound a bunch in supermarkets. If you prefer, when out on your daily walk you could take a photograph of a patch of wild flowers showing all stages from bud to full bloom (any flowers – they don’t have to be daffodils or tulips) and complete the challenge when you are safely back home. Please ensure you comply with all current Covid restrictions and the Countryside Code (in particular, please don’t pick the flowers). All entries must be submitted on behalf of the child by the child’s parent/guardian or school. 


Draw or paint your flowers each day starting with buds on day one. This is best done at the same time each day e.g. after homework or home schooling is completed. Draw or paint the first 4 days’ pictures onto the same piece of paper. You can choose to draw or paint either the whole bunch or single stems. On the last day, draw or paint the whole bunch on a separate piece of paper. When you’ve finished, put this in your window above or below the sheet with days 1-4 drawings/paintings, just like you did with your rainbow last year for the NHS and others to see on their walks!
