Life gets so busy with school, sports, play dates and adult responsibilities so when there is an afternoon where nothing is scheduled and we have time to just hang out it feels truly special. On those days, when the little one looks up and says, “Let’s do an art project,” my heart is happy and I am ready to pull out the art supplies and get creative. Here is a simple Tissue Paper Water Color Art Project that will make your heart happy, too.

A great way to extend this activity would be to have the children research whatever they chose to feature in their picture. Check out our educational online resources and get the kids excited about exploring their interests.We had so much fun learning about whales.
