Art Activity

Ocean Craft

Materials: paper, crayons, watercolors (or food coloring and water), paintbrush

Create a beautiful ocean scene with crayons and watercolors!

  • Have your child use crayons to draw any ocean animal on a sheet of thick paper. (You can also draw outlines of animals for your child to color in.)

  • Have your child press hard with the crayons so there is a thick layer of wax.

  • Then get out your watercolors. (You can also make your own with a couple of drops of food coloring in a cup of water.)

  • Your child can paint over the whole paper with blues and greens. You can still see the animal through the “ocean” because the waxy crayon repels water!

Actividad de arte

Arte marino

Materiales: papel, crayones, acuarelas (o colorantes de alimentos y agua), pincel

¡Crea una hermosa escena marina con crayones y acuarelas!

  • Haz que tu hijo use crayones para dibujar cualquier animal marino en una hoja de papel grueso. (También puedes dibujar los contornos de los animales para que tu hijo los coloree).

  • Haz que tu hijo presione fuerte con los crayones para que haya una capa gruesa de cera.

  • Luego saca tus acuarelas. (También puedes hacer las tuyas con un par de gotas de colorante para alimentos en una taza de agua).

  • Tu hijo puede pintar sobre todo el papel con azules y verdes. ¡Todavía puedes ver al animal a través del “mar” porque la cera del crayón repele el agua!
