Watercolors with a Toddler

I wanted to try watercolors with Adam, but I was afraid he’d ruin them immediately by mixing the colors.  So, I came up with this super clever way to avoid that!

1.  Buy the cheap, Roseart water colors.

2.  Cut them apart.  I cut out a blue/green color family and gave him those.

3.  Let him paint on cardstock, and try to keep him from drinking the water.

It was his first watercolor experience and I think it was a hit!
