Alphabet Watercolor Art

Alphabet Watercolor Art Project

This is a fun art project to try with kindergarten or preschool children who are beginning to write the alphabet. It comes out really bright and colorful and would look great framed and hung up on the wall.  

MATERIALS:

  • White cardstock or construction paper
  • Crayons
  • Watercolors
  • Water
  • Paintbrush

Alphabet Watercolor Paint Supplies

STEPS:

1. Fold the paper into 30 squares (5 across and 6 down). This will be tricky for kids to do, so I suggest folding it for them if they cannot do it themselves.

2. Have your child trace the fold lines with a crayon. Try to get them to press firmly; the crayon creates a barrier that keeps the watercolor confined to each square.

3. Draw an illustration or symbol in each corner of the paper, like a heart or a star, using crayons and pressing firmly. This leaves 26 squares remaining for the letters of the alphabet.         

4. Fill the remaining squares with the letters of the alphabet. Darker colored crayons show up better when you add the watercolors on top.

5. Paint all the squares with watercolors then let dry.
