This project takes several days to complete.  You need plenty of counter space to 'dry' each part of the art.  An alternative is Kids Texture taken from Copycat Press.

Start with each student sponge painting a blue background all over the white construction paper.  Sprinkle salt to add a neat effect to the paper.  Let dry.  Next, have each student dip an arm from elbow to fingertips in brown paint and help place their arm on the center of the paper toward the bottom.  Let dry.  Then, have students dip the side of their fist for flowers.  Have a choice of colors, but make sure that their arm is clean for each new color and remind the students not to print over an existing wet color because it will turn muddy.
