A quick-to-set-up-with-great-results, guaranteed messy fun — do it outside if you have no way of protecting your surfaces.
- Paper or card stock
- Watercolours (we have the standard tablets of dried watercolours)
- Plastic plates, one or more
- Mat (we use a shower curtain)
Lay your mat out if you have one and arrange your paper or card stock on top. Pour a small amount of water onto the plate(s) and wet your paintbrush, brush it over the watercolours, then hold your brush over your paper and flick. Child 1, who is three years old, really enjoyed this.
That’s it! And the results are pretty good.
