Initial Watercolor Paint Project for Kids

August 24, 2015 2 By EngineerMommy

This watercolor paint project is a fun, easy craft for kids! All you need is some painter’s tape or washi tape (see other washi tape ideas here, here and here) and a set of watercolor paints! You simply place the tape on the paper, forming any particular letter. Then, you paint over the tape with some watercolors. When you peel the tape off, you’re left with a pretty watercolor art!

My kids loved this project, and Sophia demanded to hang her artwork in her room to admire it every day. I’m so glad when she expresses a pride in her artwork, and I always try to foster within her a sense of creativity with her artwork. Some other kid’s crafts we’ve done in the past (this, this and this) have really instilled within her a love for arts & crafts… and to be honest, I myself love doing art with her!

So here is the easy tutorial on this project!
