Underwater Art


scrap paper and 1 piece of plain white paper for each child
blue and green watercolor paints


Give each child a piece of plain
paper and suggest that they use
crayons to draw simple underwater
plants and animals on the paper.
2. Tell the children that they should
leave the background of their
paper white and not color the
water around the plants and
animals with crayon, because you'll
be using paints for that later.
3. When the children have finished
coloring their plants and animals,
distribute blue and green
watercolor paints.
4. Tell the children to paint over their
entire sheet of paper using a
combination of blue and green
watercolor paint. The paint will
adhere to the paper, but not to the
crayon (the crayon resist).
Consider the following:
* Do the children draw and color underwater plants and animals?
* Do the children paint over the entire sheet of paper? Do the children enjoy
painting over the paper?
