Activity

Easy Peezy Lemon Squeezy Paintings

Kid made Melted Crayon Nebulas

Materials

  • Watercolor paper (alternative: thick paper towels)
  • Liquid water colors (alternative: food colors)
  • Paintbrushes
  • Dropper
  • Small piece of sponge or tissue
  • Lemon juice

Directions
  1. Cut watercolor paper to child sized rectangles - postcard size works well.
  2. Paint paper cards with liquid watercolors, full strength for most intense colors. Try to fill in all the white areas.
  3. Let dry completely!
  4. Using a dropper or paintbrush, drip small dots of lemon juice on the cards. Let sit for a couple of minutes to soak in before dabbing with a small piece of sponge or tissue. The citric acid will “bleach” out the color below it and make some crazy patterns.
  5. Optional for older children: Use a black ball point pen or fine-tip marker to trace the shapes that are created.
