We did two water color activities:
1) Salty Watercolors from Marryann Kohls First Art Book
2) Open ended watercolor art!
Salty Water Colors:
In the picture above, each child is on a different step (minus the waiting of course… that’s the hard part hehe)
Step 1: Add glue to your paper in the design you want.
Step 2: Sprinkle salt Above and then tilt salted paper back into salt dish to get rid of excess salt.
Step 3: Wait for it to dry for a little bit of time… blow it… talk..chat… for like 2 – 3 minutes.(You don’t have to wait for it to dry but I find that it comes out better if you do)
Step 4: Touch your paintbrush that has watercolor on it to the tip of the salt on your paper to watch the colors spread.
Here are the finished pictures:
When these were dry they look BEAUTIFUL… they are very glittery and sparkly!
After this we did some Open ended watercolor art…
