Sharing is caring!


Skills this child development activity enhances:

For ages: Preschool 3 years +

Materials Needed:

  • White Paper
  • White Crayon
  • Watercolor Paints

Crayon Revelation Instructions:

Have your child make a drawing using a white crayon on a white piece of paper, encouraging your child to press down hard with the crayon. (You may also want to add some shapes or drawings on the paper).

Next, let your child paint over the crayon drawing with watercolor paints. The crayon marks will emerge very clearly from the painting, especially after the paint is dry.

This works just as well with a yellow rayon on yellow paper, an orange crayon on orange paper, etc.
