Simple watercolor abstract paintings created by children can be reorganized to create attractive cards or wall decor. A perfect picture for a playroom or for giving to grandparents!


Time: 20 minutes
Age: Under 5's with some parental assistance
Level: Easy

Materials
  • Card stock or construction paper
  • Water color paints
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

  • Method
  • I sat my preschooler down with a sheet of card stock and water color paints and let her go to work painting her own picture.


  • After the painting is dry, cut the picture into strips. I used 1 inch by 3 inch strips.


  • Start pasting the strips in a herringbone pattern on another piece of card stock. The strips may need to be trimmed a bit to ensure a tight fit.


  • Trim the strips and fill in any small spaces with the extra.


  • Create a cleaner look by framing in a card or put the picture under a mat to frame for your wall.

  • My preschooler was so happy with how the picture turned out, she wants to make another one for her room!
