Paper Towel Painting 

STEP 1: Get your supplies ready

Before you get started making your paper towel art you need to get all your supplies ready. Choose a few colours that compliment each other and prepare your liquid watercolours. Place an old piece of cardstock across the area you will be working on to absorb any excess watercolour paint that may soak through your paper towels.

STEP 2: Paint on paper towels

Now for the fun part! Invite your toddler or preschooler to come and paint their paper towel. They will love experimenting to see how the watercolour paint travels and spreads as they dab it onto the paper towels.
