I knew my kids would love playing with liquid watercolours the first time I saw them on Pinterest.
This was the first time we used the watercolours so we didn’t have any agenda other than experimenting and having fun. Children learn so much in play. I provided jars of diluted watercolours, watercolour paper and plastic pipettes. Oh – and lots of newspaper and kitchen paper. You’ll see why in the photos!
I don’t know whether liquid watercolours aren’t used in the UK as much as in the USA – I hadn’t come across them before, and had to order them from Amazon US. We had so much fun with a very small quantity, though, so the shipping cost was worth it. C has even been recycling some of her watercolour art by photocopying it and using it in her art journal. This is definitely an activity we’ll be repeating over the summer!
