Having spent an afternoon with my daughter soaking and painting tissues, my mum drew upon her creative reservoir to produce this fun activity for us (including my two preschoolers) to do. They look so good I have just put them up on my wall!
A word of warning before you try to do this at home; it is incredibly, finger-stainingly messy and all the more fun because of it.
1. Soak some watercolour paper in water
2. Gently blot them
3. Sprinkle pure powdered pigment (we used Brusho) over the wet paper
4. Watch the colours spread
5. Leave to dry
6. Frame, hang and enjoy!
