I love how kids draw people. There is just something about them that makes me smile every time. Annika made this beautiful drawing of our family today with a fine black sharpie. I love everything about it.
As always, she wanted to add some color. I was hesitant to make a big mess with paint since I was cleaning up the house for a dessert party. So we pulled out the water color pencils. I LOVE watercolor pencils because they are easy for kids to control, no mess and they look wonderful.
Annika colored everything with the water color pencils. Cute!
I love how the colors get brighter and you no longer see the pencil lines. It looks just like water colors.
We also bring the watercolor pencils in the car so the kids can paint while we are driving. Instead of a paint brush and water, we use the Blender Brushes from Stampin’ Up so there is no water to spill. Also if your kiddos enjoy the coloring books you can buy for water painting, you can create your own with watercolor pencils. Simply color the page with the water color pencils, and then let the kiddos “paint” it with water.
