When you are looking for an idea for something productive to do with your child, then maybe being involved with an art project is the answer. This kind of art is a simple craft that will be fun for you and your child to do together. There are a few watercolor art projects for kids to do. The watercolors are your best choice for kids to be involved with as this can become quite messy and the watercolor paint can be easily washed off. First decide just what it is you will want to make. Start the project by first drawing the design or image with the use of a crayon or even a marker on a sheet of art paper. Then dip the brush into water and go on to wet the brush and then run the brush over the entire paper. Now you can begin to paint on the art paper. The paint shall fill everywhere other then the area that was drawn with the marker or crayon.
Another idea it to use a rectangular sheet of art paper and put four blobs of four colors in the corners of the paper. Then your child can use his or her fingers and begin to spread the colors, two blobs at a time in anyway they want to create some kind of design and ending it when meeting in the center of the paper. Get a spool of thread for this next idea. Take the piece of paper and place it on a flat surface. Then take the piece of thread and lightly dip it into paint. Then begin to place the thread onto paper to create designs by pressing the thread down onto the paper and then pulling the thread by the other end. This will create a formation for a design on paper. The idea of watercolor art projects for kids are not so difficult and can allow kids to explore some new and interesting avenues in regard to arts and crafts. You can use the ideas that are written above or even let your kids decide on their own as kids do have such a fascinating imagination. This will even give the kids some confidence by allowing them to create with their own thoughts and ideas.
