A hand-made note adds a personal touch to correspondence. Why not make your mom or someone special a set to communicate to friends and loved ones? Materials Blank card sets Liquid watercolours Paintbrushes Containers Water Smock Craft tray Directions Don your smock and set out your craft tray and/or cover your workspace with a plastic saZXtable cloth. Prepare your paints. We used diluted liquid watercolours and enjoyed making secondary colours from the primary colours. It was a great time to talk about warm and cool colours as well. Put your card and envelope into your tray and enjoy playing with watercolours! If you need a starting point, here are a few things we experimented with: Stripes Circles Brushstrokes and Dabs We then branched out to to other ideas. I may be a bit biased, but I love this idea our eldest came up with- making the letters for M-O-M into flowers! (When he was done he even popped in his tooth fairy money for me to use at Starbucks! Gotta love those moments!) Use one of the cards to write a note to your recipient and then wrap your cards and matching envelopes with ribbon. Purpose Creating opportunities for writing Exploring with watercolour paints Safety Notes Be sure to use a smock and craft tray to protect your clothing and/or surfaces.
