As someone who is constantly looking for fun things to do with my nieces and nephews, I am willing to give any simple DIY, recipe, craft, or art project a shot.

I love any opportunity to allow these kids to express their creativity and learn something new at the same time, like with this fun and delicious Boo-nana recipe.

So naturally, when I stumbled upon the shockingly simple way to make a whole new kind of art project, I knew I’d be trying it out with them.

In this exclusive video, Brenda shows just how easy it is to make watercolor-resist art. I had never even heard of this before, but I couldn’t believe how perfect it was for kids.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • White card stock
  • Crayons
  • Watercolor paints
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 paintbrushes
  • Sponge
  • Saucer
  • Paper towels

I’m pretty sure my nieces and nephews already have crayons and watercolors, so we should be all set to go next time I visit.

Watch the video below so you can quickly become a watercolor-resist art expert as well. Will you be trying out this fun new type of art with the kids in your life? Let us know in the comments!
