Day 4: Kids Watercolor Art

paintingHey Everyone! I thought it would be fun to turn my kid’s watercolors into wall art. Then I found this awesome tutorial to top it off. Not just regular watercolor but… BUBBLE WATERCOLORS! I’m so excited to try this one out!

My kids love anything to do with painting, who doesn’t. So mixing another fav, bubbles into it was fabulous. It even got me excited when I saw the finished product photos on the tutorial site.





If you want to stick with just watercolors and no bubbles, have your kids do bands across the watercolor paper. Making an abstract sunset effect. It looks brilliant in a frame.


You would only need brushes, watercolor paper, watercolors (I use the liquid concentrated form of watercolors) and a frame.

With bubbles…

The original tutorial called for making a small version of bubble paint on paper and taking it in to the print shop to be enlarged for wall art.
