Watercolor Name Painting | A Toddler Craft


One of the difficult things about moving is finding ways to keep little children busy while there are so many chores to be done. I've mentioned before how much my children love watercolor painting and lately, it's a favorite project to do while I'm packing. I simply set them up in the room I'll be working in-they paint, I pack.


I've figured out Oliver will paint a lot longer if the paper has some kind of design on it (rather than a blank sheet) so last week I printed out his name. He loved it! While he was painting away we talked about the letters in his name, colors and superheros. You can see the the full post where I share my favorite free outline font on Hellobee.

  1. We aren't quit at the painting stage yet, but I just busted out the popcorn kernels to play with for my toddler. I may give her a couple more months before we paint. I can't wait though. This looks like so much fun!
