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
  • Stapler

 

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!
