A Spring Theme Mother’s Day Art

During this time of year, it’s just so wonderful to be outdoors. With spring underway, there’s beautiful flowers everywhere. And moms love flowers! We all do.  Even though little ones might not be able to cut us some, flowers painted by little hands make a great  gift  🙂

Flower Triptych

I love to do crafts with the kids. It is fun, quick and easy. But I love art made by kids that I can treasure even when they are off to college. So I plan for art we can do together that I can hang on my wall. The flower triptych looks great framed and hanged. 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.

Crayon and 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.
