How to Make a Watercolor Mother’s Day Card
Write and/or draw your message on the front of the card using the white crayon. It will be difficult to see but thicker lines work best. Make sure to use thick paper such as card stock so the watercolor paint doesn’t seep through the paper.
Then, add a few drops of watercolor paint to your palette and start painting. We used pink, purple, and blue for our card, but feel free to use any colors you like! Use watercolors to paint over the card revealing the message.
If the water bubbles up over the wax, you can use a paper towel to gently blot (don’t rub)the wax.
Allow to dry completely before writing inside the card.
This is a very colorful and fun activity for kids of all ages and can be done in just a few minutes. So gather your supplies and give it a try!
