During this series we have been exploring different art projects that can be done using different mediums.
This week I have some fun art projects using water color paints! I am amazed at what these little dry cakes can do! Water color paints are inexpensive and easy to clean up. Little ones love dipping their brushes into water and making paint to create art with!
Here are some fun water color paint art projects:
Abstract Art created using pipettes – create abstract designs by squirting water color paints onto paper towels.
How to water color textures – learn how to paint with 8 different types of textures. This is really fun!
Painting with water colors and Elmer’s glue – this is neat!
DIY Rainbow Stained Glass Window
Salty Watercolors – mix salt and glue and water colors for this fun activity.
This isn’t art, but it’s a really fun activity using water colors and words:
Invisible Sight Word Watercolor Painting – practice sight words by painting over them and seeing them appear!
Writing Names in Watercolors – great for preschoolers to practice writing their names, by tracing with watercolors.
Writing Secret Messages with watercolors and a white crayon.
