What To Do with Kids Art
Turning Kid’s Art into Modern Watercolor Art
How to make Art from Kids Art
- Lay out watercolor paper and pencils and let your child paint until their heart’s content. Sit back and marvel at their creativity
- After they’ve created art with the pencils, let them “paint” over the pencils with water and a paintbrush
- Let the artwork dry completely
- Use the 2″ circle cutter and cut as many circles as possible from each page (I got 20 circles/page).
- Grab your 9×12 paper and arrange the circles in your pattern of choice (random would also be fun!)
- Use a glue stick to attach each circle in place 7) frame the artwork and display! I chose to mount our artwork on top of mat board for a modern look.
I ended up with way more circles than I actually used. But, that’s okay! The leftovers will be fun for another project.
Do I even have to tell you that my daughter was OVERJOYED to help me with this project?! She was beyond proud of our finished product. And, you know what? So was I. Love getting creative with my little partner-in-crime! 🙂
