Have fun painting the entire sheet of paper with water.
While it’s still wet, ask your child to use the markers to draw to their hearts content. It’s ok if the wet paper gets torn a little in the process.
Skilly Spark:Watch the colors run. Talk about how the water makes their marks soften and change.
Give different colored markers a try to see even more watery effects until their drawing is complete. Step away for a few, say 2 or 3 minutes, and see even more transformation when you come back. And when it dries, take a moment to remember how the marks looked when you started and now, how different it looks when it’s dry.
Keep the fun going
Reverse it! Draw on dry paper and then paint it with water. Check out how the watery brush strokes change your kid's vision.
When dry, these runny drawings make great wrapping paper and kid-friendly placemats.
