Fall Nesting: Watercolor Leaves [Kid-friendly Art Project] {Day 12}

Here's a kid-friendly fall art project using watercolors. I don't have kids currently but I know a lot of my readers do.

I knew that this would turn out better if I used artist quality watercolor paint but I wanted to see if it would work with the cheap, kid stuff. It worked pretty well, but you won't be able to get a high color saturation without the "real" paint.

I used a green leaf as the stencil because I found the changed leaves too brittle to use.

I just held down the leaf on the paper as I brushed the color on.

Add all the colors that you would like.

Ta-da! Super kid-friendly.

Happy Friday!
