Crayon Resist Paintings
Heavy paper, watercolor paints, paint brushes, crayons, water
Have your child draw a picture with crayons, pressing down firmly to leave a heavy coating of crayon. Light colored crayons work best. Then have your child paint over the crayon drawing with watercolor paint. It's better to use a darker color of paint and lots of water so the paint is not too thick. (Tip: Don't let your child put too much paint on the paper. You don't want the masterpiece to rip.) Let the paint dry and then hang your child's work of art on the wall!
