School is out and we are looking for fun projects for the kids to tackle. I’ve tried watercolor lately and I knew they would enjoy it, so I set it up for a fun afternoon activity. My concern with a watercolor craft is the mess involved – kiddos can be messy when crafting;) But I was able to combat it with a setup that offered Watercolor with No Mess! I set up the activity using Bounty Advanced and it was perfect!
I was able to pick up Bounty Advanced at Costco – I love the bulk sizing because I anticipate LOTS of crafty messes this summer!
To set up the project area, you’ll need cups for water, a watercolor palette, and the paper towels. Everyday life is messy, but that’s what makes it interesting. That’s part of why I love crafting and creating and instilling that interest in my kiddos. With the quicker picker upper you can live in the moment not in the mess, which is what we all need!
I made sure that there were paper towel sheets under all the supplies, in addition to under each of their canvases. I liked the size of the Longer Select-A-Size sheets (vs. National Market Bounty Select-A-Size).
That way, moving from colors to water to canvas, the paper towels are ready and waiting to pick up any drips or spills because they are Bounty’s Most Absorbent Towel* (* vs. National Bounty Select-A-Size Towels).
It helped the kids because they were able to not worry about making a mess and really just focus on being creative.
We also used Bounty Advanced as a water blotter when changing colors. I would consider the paper towels an integral tool in the craft of watercolor.
When they were finished, clean up was a breeze! Just picked up everything and we were good to go, no messes to worry about. It was perfect.
If you are looking for awesome messy paint activities to do with your kids this summer, you’ll want to check out my post on just that! They will for sure need Bounty Advanced!
