Waldorf Coloring Books Kids Craft
Watercolor Kids Craft
My daughter is always after me to staple her art into “books”. Today I thought she might like to make a very fancy book for her art. This craft was very easy, and could be done in so many ways, but here is how we did it!
What we used:
- 140lb cold pressed watercolor paper 15 x 17 inches. (I had a tablet of this)
- A tube of Red, Yellow and Blue watercolor paint and a brush
- Drawing paper
1: First thing we did was paint the entire piece of watercolor paper. I wet the paper so we were doing wet on wet painting in the Waldorf style.
2: Once my daughter finished painting the paper I set it in the sun to dry faster.
3: Once it was dry I folded the paper around the 8.5 x 11 drawing paper I was using for the pages of the book so that I knew exactly where to cut the painting to make a nice sized cover.
4: I used a stapler to secure the drawing paper inside the cover (I have seen more talented crafters use a sewing machine to make a binding, but I was not really confident in my ability to do this with out damage to myself and my machine).
That is all there is to it! Like I said, I am sure there are many ways to do this craft! If you have another way please share!
