Watercolor Resist Valentines!
I love making Valentines with my kids! And they love having hand made pieces of art to pass out at school. So this is the perfect activity for just that!
-Watercolor Paper ( 140lb)
-1 piece of Copy paper
- watercolors ( Pan or Liquid watercolors will work!)
- white crayon or oil pastel
Step 1: Make your template! Fold a sheet of copy paper in half. Draw half of your heart. Talk to your kids about symmetry . Then cut out and you have your template!
Step 2: Trace your template onto watercolor paper. Then cut out all your hearts!!
Step 3: Use Oil pastel or white crayon to draw your designs! Remember to press down hard when drawing your designs.
Step 4: Add your watercolor to reveal your designs!! This is where the magic happens!
Step 5: Once the front is dry flip your Valentines over and splatter the back.
Once dry you can use Sharpie or another marker to add your message!
