Here's how we did it:
Take a large white piece of heavy art paper. Use blue painters tape to mark out the initial of the child. Place drops of 2 separate colors on the paper, working in small areas at a time. We used yellow and blue and talked about how mixing colors and blending them together can make another color...in this case, green! Give them a brush and just turn them loose!
I combined two separate processes that I saw on pinterest. If you want to view the inspiration links, you can check it out HERE and HERE.
Note: I did not use watercolors. I preferred the abstract approach but used Crayola washable tempera paints instead of acrylic.
Tips for parents: Remember it's "their" work. It's OKAY to let them do it....their way. It will turn out great, promise. And the mess will clean up....promise.
Now, off the computer for me...it's time to go make some turkeys with these little artists!
