Watercolor fun you can take with you! I’m so excited about this simple little idea! These homemade just-add-water paint pages make it easy to say “yes” to painting, and we can take them on hikes or picnics! All you need is some watercolor paper and tubes of watercolor paint.
I used KOI Watercolors but any liquid water colors will do, those are just what I had on hand.
After a couple hours the dots had hardened up nicely. Yesterday afternoon we gave them a try and we were delighted at how well they worked!
Well, disclaimer: James and I were delighted. Leland (3) kept painting with them and yet, kept saying whining, “It’s not wooooorking.” I am guessing he was just hoping for more of the goopy painting experience he’s used to.
- Put some ready-to-paint dots in your art journal or garden journal! I made some ready to paint pages for this week’s garden journaling.
- Draw a line or letter in permanent marker as a painting start.
- Put your dots on other places on the page and see what that inspires.
Have fun painting!
