Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Craft

Today we did a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Painting Craft that we also did when my little guy was just one year old! It is a water color resist art project that my son always seems to enjoy. Start by coloring white stars onto watercolor paper. Then have your child paint with black watercolor over the entire page. I used watered down black tempera paint because I wanted to make sure the paint came out a dark black color. Watch as the stars magically appear! My little artist proudly exclaimed “Look momma, it’s a star!”
His finished masterpiece….

We also sang and read the song to Baby Sister from the adorable baby gym board books we received from Timberdoodle.
I am linking this post to these weekly link parties and Outer Space Week over on the Smart Summer Challenge.

    That's a neat idea! We will have to try something like this. Snowflakes would be fun too. Or even their name!

    Thanks for posting this! I tried to do the exact same thing (stars and all!) for my son a few months ago, but the crayon didn't resist the tempera paint. I didn't think to water it down first! Eureka!
