Hidden Picture Painting {{Craft for Kids}}

Artwork collage
My kids are finally getting old enough to understand arts and crafts…or maybe they’re just getting old enough to not make quite as big of a mess! =)  So, I’ve been busy creating different activities for them to do.
For this project, you’ll need:
  • Watercolor paint
  • Paintbrush
  • White Crayon
  • Tape
  • White cardstock
  • Coloring picture (since it’s close to Easter I printed Easter themed pictures) {{I searched online for “Easter coloring picture” and found these super cute ones to print.}}
Start by taping the the papers to the window (put the coloring picture underneath the cardstock).  Using a white crayon, trace the image on the coloring sheet.

Now it’s time to paint!  I tried to encourage my kiddos to use Easter colors but I’m not quite sure they followed that direction.  See what I get for trying to put a damper on their creativity! =)  They turned out cute even if they aren’t Easter colors and they had so much fun!  As for the hidden picture….they were so busy painting and mixing colors that they hardly noticed the hidden picture I created for them. 
**By the way, have you noticed that my kids are still in their jammies?!?!  I tried to crop that out but you might as well know we were having a lazy Saturday!!!! =)  Staying in your pajamas is much more fun that getting dressed! **
What fun and creative projects have you completed with your own kiddos lately?  Link it up below…I can’t wait to see what you and your kiddos have created! Briana_signature

I love these, we used to do this with candles and crayons! Something I will definitely have to do with my children, thanks for reminding my about this!
