Summertime is coming soon along with lots of ice cream and popsicles. For today’s project, I grabbed my shimmery watercolors and some cute popsicle dies for a sherbet-y romantic greeting.
These Water-Painted Cotton Ball Flowers take watercolors to a whole new level. This craft idea is fun, easy to prep and so beautiful!

This Secret Easter Egg Art is the perfect craft idea to do this Easter! Kids will be so excited to reveal patterns and designs of the Easter egg using watercolors and a paintbrush. Super quick to set up and no complicated instructions.
This craft is a quick DIY that can easily involve kids of any age. I wanted to try it out simply because I love experimenting with watercolors and this is a perfect way to have some fun just making brush strokes and in the end you have a fun piece of decor for a party or a kids room.
Choose a specific color scheme, or just go crazy. The possibilities are endless and the result is super fun!

Here are some very basic, but pretty, watercolor flowers broken down step-by-step for your painting enjoyment. Use them to paint your own greeting cards, or embellish a favorite quote to frame.
When teaching arts and crafts my primary goal is to give young children experience with mediums that they will be able to use independently to discover the world around them and to express themselves through their work. Watercolors are a great medium for experimentation, discovery and self expression because there are so many ways to paint with watercolors. Let your children experience the varied effects of incorporating some of the following into your watercolor paintings: salt and ice, oil, rice, stickers, tape and glue, brushes and straws to name a few! Here’s a roundup of ideas for projects to inspire your kids at home or in the classroom.
There are a few different ways to paint with bubbles. Some use straws, some use wands. Either way you choose to make your bubbles this craft is going to be a hit with the kids. And when they’re done they can use the paper to wrap presents for friends and family. You can even use newsprint or other recycled paper to make this project even more sustainable.

When I first read this tutorial ‘family’ crafting came to mind because the first part of the project is appropriate for all ages and the final stages would be appeal to older children and young adults. I love being able to say in my classroom or at home ‘we made this together’. This craft project would make lovely wall art for the kids’ rooms as well!
