The other day I was watering plants, and I accidentally dripped some water on one of my daughter's artworks. Since their creations need to be treated with respect, or so they think, I put it on the kitchen counter to dry. And then I convinced her that I liked it almost even better this way:
It had sort of a water color look. My girls were really excited about it and thought it looked like they painted it!
So we felt like we 'invented' a new craft by accident!
We took some coloring books, just those made with that ugly grey-ish paper.
They picked a favorite picture, and colored it with markers.
Then we sprayed it with a water bottle.
And let it dry...
(We put it outside in the sun.)
Just a fun, quick little craft, and it looks like they painted, without the mess.
