Watercolour Cards Kids Can Make



I love these cards. We've made a stack over the last few months as I have an endless supply of  watercolour paper off-cuts.

We fold long pieces in half before drawing a picture on the front with Miss Pea's favorite rainbow pencil or crayons.



The best part is painting with watercolours over the top. These two particular cards feature drawings of Nan & Pop's garden and Grandma & Grandad's caravan. I think they're beautiful. 




Do your kids enjoy making cards?

  2. So beautiful! We've never use water colour paper before, we usually just use regular paper. I must try it one day :)

  3. This post has been a highlight for me. I have only used watercolours a few times in my life (terrible I know) but they make everything look so wonderful. Thanks for the inspiration. These cards are divine.

  10. I love how you've gotten the children to use water colors so artistically. I worked in ad agencies and we were always creating custom cards for some event or occasion. I inspired my kids to do the same, getting them to make rather than buy birthday and holiday cards. They would get to use their imaginations and create a keepsake that was always more special to the recipient.
    Here's our blog post on it.
