The paintings seen above were created with two essentials in my room; liquid watercolors and dippty dye paper. The watercolors are so useful, if you don’t already have some put them on the list for next year. The paper absorbs paint like fabric and doesn’t break down.
The students used medicine droppers to apply paint to the paper. It spread out and soaked in. They then stamped circles on their paper with half of a paper towel roll. I added a handle on the other end of the cardboard tube so the student could hold on to it.
