How to create Watercolor Resist Spelling Words
Have your child write their spelling words on the paper with the white oil pastel. It will be hard to see at first, but the fun will happen when they start painting.
After they’ve filled the paper with their spelling words, your child can get started painting.
Paint your paper all one color, make patterns, or use every single color on your watercolor palette. This is time to get creative. Paint flowers, heart, or clouds over the top. Anything goes. As your child starts painting, their spelling words will magically appear.
I always love art, so this activity doesn’t even feel like studying. But, in reality, your child will practice writing their words and they’ll read them a few time while painting. Watercolor Resist Spelling Words is fun, colorful, and perfect for any kid that loves art.
