A Spring Theme Mother’s Day Art

With Spring underway, there’s beautiful flowers everywhere. And moms love flowers.  Flowers painted by little hands make a great  gift  :)

Flower Triptych

Have fun with the kids making a keepsake to give to Mom for Mother’s Day.  With a little help, kids can make a flower triptych that Mom will love to keep.  All you need is a little paper, watercolors and crayons.

Mother’s Day Kids Crayon & Watercolor Art

Most people refer to this technique as “wax resist”  or “crayon resist” art.  It simply means the watercolors won’t paint  over the crayon drawing.   So we will see the outline of the flowers  after painting with watercolors.

This project looks great framed!
