These  Watercolor Crafts would be so much fun to do with your kids!  You could make a banner and let them hang it in their room or in the living room for a special holiday or a fun surprise birthday idea.  Make a t-shirt or a simple phrase that you frame.   Lets dive into all of these ideas with Stefanie with Simple Acres:

This banner is a simple DIY you can enjoy on your own or do with the little ones!

The material needed include:
watercolor materials
premade paper banner (mine was found from Hobby Lobby)
-water, cup and paint tray

Simply start painting your banner as you please!

To achieve a tie dye look:  paint it in varying colors in a circular fashion using water on your brush to blend.

I also chose to do some of my banner in an ombre fashion.  This can be achieved by painting darker on the paper on one side and then spreading the paint lightly with a watered down brush. The creative possibilities are endless with this simple project!

You could also use your banner and let the kids decorate it with a few simple watercolor pens that works well for this.   This is so fun for them!

The ideas are endless….  Here are a few that would be great for watercolor crafts:

1- Using the banner to decorate a coke crate.

4~Make tie-dye t-shirts for the kids.

5~ Draw your favorite word and color around it to make a statement piece.   You could use this in your child’s room to say something like “Beautiful” or “Strong” or “Kind”
Or “Brave”
