crayola® watercolor popsicle painting

This project is intended for kids age 4+. Kids will love creating a summer-y popsicle painting using Crayola® watercolor paints. Watch as the paints blend with the water to create the popsicle, then watch as the watercolor resist the crayon pattern you draw in the background.
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the shape.

Step 2

Lightly trace the popsicle onto watercolor paper.

Step 3

Dip your paintbrush in clean water and paint in the popsicle drawing with water only but leave the popsicle stick dry.

Step 4

Now, dip your brush into watercolor paint with a wet brush and pick up some paint, then dab it onto the wet popsicle drawing.
TIP: Watch as the water wicks the color around into the water.

Step 5

Repeat Step 4 until your popsicle is filled until you are happy with your artwork.

Step 6

Paint the popsicle stick and let it dry.

Step 7

Finally, draw stripes, dots or other desired pattern on the background using a white crayon. Now, paint with your watercolors over the background. Be sure to avoid the painted popsicle and stick. Let dry.
