Watercolor Resist Hearts
An Activity for Preschoolers:
Reveal special messages and unique designs with this engaging watercolor technique.
Before You Begin:
Although this craft activity is a pre-made shape, encourage children to use as much creativity as possible when decorating their frames.
To observe the reaction between crayons and watercolors.
To explore resist art as a watercolor technique.
To create a colorful Valentine’s Day artwork.
Although this activity can be done with regular art paper, the watercolor hearts provide a special quality to the crayon and watercolor resist.
Let's Get Started
Have children use a white crayon to draw or write a message on Liquid Watercolor™ hearts.
Brush over the design or message with watercolor. If using watercolor sprayers, have the children spray over their hearts with different colors.
Children can watch the design or message magically appear!
Allow the hearts to dry.
Once dry, you may also have children use these hearts as a card decoration or a decoration for a box or bag.
