How we did it:

Materials List

  1. crayons
  2. watercolor paint
  1. My son drew grudgingly with that frustrating white crayon that never produces results, but I promised him this time it would.

  2. To his delight, as we started painting over it with watercolors, the white drawing he'd made began to show through. He declared this ocean scene "Hawaii!" You can also use this method to create and reveal secret messages.

  3. We tried various colors to see how they looked with different watercolors. It was an armchair trip to MOMA!
